Remembered Today:

Medicine and the Great War: a tentative bibliography


Recommended Posts

I have collated the results of a lot of searches that I have done for various people in the last seven or eight years. The result is absolutely not the final word on the subject, nor is it intended to be comprehensive, but if I don't stop now I'll drive myself up the wall trying to ensure that I have everything! (I am not going to add every single article in the Journals of the RAMC and RNMS, for example, let alone all the Forces news supplements in the British Medical Journal.)

 

For what it's worth I attach the resulting pdf. If anyone wants the Word document so that they can alter it, print it out and scribble on it, or whatever, let me know via Personal Message and I'll e-mail it to you.

 

Have fun!

Jane- A lovely piece of work and the links to online sources are particularly useful. I have already found a couple of items of interest that illumine the fate of some of my local casualties. Congratulations!

There was a short bibliography printed in the 70s or 80s I will try in the next week to find it and scan it.

Thanks very much - but don't get yourself into copyright trouble!

Well I have to find it first, and normally I can place my hand on a bibliography, I can see the cover here, but can't remember where it is....

I realised that there was a book staring me in the face which I hadn't added. So there's a second edition ....

Well, we certainly don't want you to be driven up the wall :o

but, if you should ever think about adding to your already very useful bibliography

then allow me to suggest 'Allenby's Military Medicine' by Eran Dolev for possible inclusion

[with thanks for the pdf in post 1 above]

4th edition incoming, thanks to some information from @David Filsell among others.

 

You will have noticed that there are no nursing texts or memoirs: I thought they deserved a bibliography of their own, if indeed the late and much-missed Sue Light did not cover everything in http://www.scarletfinders.co.uk/.

But those articles in The Guy's Memorial give a good taster ?

True. And there is a particularly useful article (not nursing, but by a civilian in the RN Medical Service) that a colleague of mine is very thankful for.
