Cotterell, Anthony.


N.d., (c. 1943). 116 pp., 24 photo-plates. D.j., 22 x 14cm. V.G. This is the authoritative account of the Army doctors and their helpers, including the stretcher-bearers: the story of the constructive heroism of medicine on the battlefield. R.A.M.C. is mainly concerned with the care of the wounded and sets out to answer two fundamental questions of its day in 1943: what are the chances of the individual fighting man becoming wounded, and what happens if he is. Disease and accidents, however, have always been more prominent than the enemy. Sometimes a higher portion of men have been disabled in learning to drive lorries than in parachuting down to battle. The R.A.M.C. must plan or advise on the prevention of such problems.
