The volume is the first of several which present the problems of prevention and control of communicable diseases in the Army in World War II, including both domestic and foreign areas. It is obvious that disease control of large numbers of troops in the U.S. and its possessions is one matter, but the complexities raised by differences and variations in diseases encountered, and sanitary measures and regulations found in many foreign countries raised the difficulties to a magnitude heretofore not encountered. There were, therefore, deficiencies as well as notable successes. Both are found in the perspectives of the diseases considered in this volume.

There are three parts to the book and 21 able contributors are responsible for a part, for one or more chapters, or both. The first part deals with general considerations and contains interesting data applicable to communicable and infectious diseases which are of significance in military operations and practice.
