US Army in WWII: The Medical Department: Medical Service in the European Theater Hardcover Edition
Graham A. Cosmas and Albert E. Cowdrey ably describe how the military medical system organized, trained, and deployed; how hospitals were built and supplies assembled and moved forward; and how casualties were treated and evacuated from the field of battle. The volume supports the proposition that the experience of medical personnel in war directly stimulates advances in medical science. The principles of medical organization remain of vital importance, the exploits of the doctors, corpsmen, and medical support units providing a model for the planning and organization of medical support in today's Army.
