This small pamphlet contains a tremendous amount of information, all of which is of interest to the average physician in the United States, for the situation among children in Europe is beyond his comprehension. The pamphlet deals mainly with the causes of the deficiencies in the diets. These are only part of the picture; the living conditions, the spread of disease and all the worst aspects and consequences of war are pictured in these pages. The facts raise the question as to how the amount of food necessary to rectify these conditions after the war can be supplied and transported.
