This volume contains an account by an eye witness of what has happened on the various fronts in the Medical Corps of the United States Army. It is interesting to note that the text consists largely of statements made by artists who were sent at the expense of the Abbott Laboratories to depict the work of this excellent branch of the Army. That these artists speak with such uniform praise of the Army Medical Corps—the doctors, nurses and corpsmen—is a tribute to American manhood and womanhood.

Each, in turn, has emphasized the thing he has encountered in his work. Each has praised without stint the labor of the corpsmen, the devotion to duty of the doctors and nurses and the indefatigable work of the entire Corps.

Each theater of operation is described in separate chapters by different artists. The nature of the report is explicitly the same.
