This monograph deals with injuries, with special reference to wound shock. The volume is compiled along the usual lines of these publications and contains much valuable material, including specific case reports. Most of this information, however, which was gleaned during the war, is more or less common knowledge at present. Such matters are discussed as blood pressure related to blood loss, response to transfusion, course during and after operation, and special features of various types of injury. However, it is very useful to have the British experience condensed between two covers, and anyone working in this field will wish to have it.
