Abstract

This third volume in the series is remarkable in many ways. It again illustrates what career military medical officers have known—lessons learned by experience must be relearned by succeeding generations of new military physicians. Much of the knowledge that was considered “new” in World War II was known, recorded, and forgotten after World War I, and physicians new to the military in Korea were generally ignorant of the information available from the last great war. If there is truth in this thesis, then perhaps one of the significant benefits of this series of historical medical publications is the compiling of data and experiences into volumes accessible to most physicians.

This present volume is tremendously interesting reading. It covers a vast area of internal medicine and is written with the perspective of personal experience. All of the authors served as medical officers, and are recognized as eminent authorities in their fields.
