Accounts by physicians as well as combatants highlight the desperate conditions of field hospitals and of surgery in the field. Broadsides and a plea for an ambulance service are both shown here and the broader aspects of medical memoirs are examined by Susan-Mary Grant. In addition to physical injury, attention is given to malingering, nostalgia and the beginnings of medical welfare.
