While this little book is essentially a work on war surgery it contains much that may prove of value to the surgeon in civil life, particularly with regard to the application of splints, bandages and extension apparatus to compound fractures. Virtually all the material presented has been described and discussed repeatedly in every surgical journal of consequence during the past three years, so that it should be fairly familiar. Nevertheless, those who desire an authoritative summary of the subject will find it here with sufficient details for general guidance.
