The number of wounded in the First World War was unprecedented, and inadequate military planning presented the medical and voluntary community with huge and daunting challenges. Yet in the face of tremendous adversity both tackled their work with resourcefulness, courage and great humanity. This book is the illustrated story of those who risked their lives collecting casualties from the front line, of the various transport and treatment facilities at their disposal and of the eclectic mix of buildings in which the wounded were cared for at home, including many famous country houses. The vital part played by nurses, both in terms of essential medical duties and in boosting morale among the patients, is also examined, rounding off this perfect introduction to medical care in the First World War.

Review:

"Historian Cohen's "Medical Services" concentrates on (nongory) images of facilities, patients, and staff. The brief but detailed work will be great for reports (the quality indexes help in this regard); a comprehensive introduction and four to eight chapters...comprise a useful overview, and those who want to explore further will appreciate the further-reading and places-to-visit lists. Attractive, informative, and approachable." --Henrietta Verma, "Library Journal" "Historian Cohen s "Medical Services" concentrates on (nongory) images of facilities, patients, and staff.
