Abstract

This book is an outline of the Canadian methods of organization and administration in the war. The several chapters concern a division in the front line, the regimental medical officer, four chapters on the work of the field ambulance, the assistant director of the medical services, the corps, medical arrangements for cavalry, and the casualty clearing station. Surgeon-General J. F. Fotheringham of Canada vouches for the accuracy of the book. It is quite brief, its contents corresponding to about thirty-two pages of The Journal, about one fifth of that space occupied by the diagrams.
