Although cold injury has always been a problem of war, greater progress has been made in an understanding of this condition since the recent Korean conflict. This kindling of interest has led to rather extensive studies in its epidemiology, pathophysiology, prevention, and treatment.
Although there are some intersting discussions in these transactions of the second conference on cold injury, yet this volume is mainly for the experts who are particularly interested in this subject. For this group it is an excellent reference of new material, new thoughts, and plans for future research.
