The object of the book, as the author states, is to give "a short account of those principles of sanitation which most nearly affect the soldier in his every-day life." Of course, it does not go so deeply into details as the encyclopedic work of Munson, but it is in the main accurate, and the advice given will prove valuable both to the junior and senior officers. The author seems to be a little too conservative in certain matters, such as that of the use of kerosene in marshes, the employment of mosquito nettings, the practicability of sterilization of water by boiling, etc.
