Medical Services and Warfare

Access via: Adam Matthew Digital

Medical Services and Warfare is a collection of digitized primary sources documenting medical history during times of armed conflict dating from the mid-19th to the mid-20th century.

The Crimean War, the American Civil War, and World War I are the primary foci of the collection, but there are also some documents from other conflicts, such as the Boer Wars and the Spanish-American War. Documents address medical advances such as sanitation, surgical techniques, artificial limbs, x-rays, and plastic surgery. Other topics include rehabilitation, nursing, and the psychological toll of war.
