Part 1, gives in detail the objective and methods of carrying out the physical restitution of the soldiers. Previous to the armistice, an effort was made to rehabilitate as many as possible for a return to active duty; following the armistice, to rehabilitate and when necessary to give vocational training in order that soldiers might be enabled to maintain a livelihood in civilian life. The methods by which this was attempted are given in detail.
