Penhallow has partly rewritten his book to meet the demands made on physicians and surgeons who are called to treat the war wounded in military or in civil hospitals. He has embodied much of the available material that has resulted from the treatment of all manner of war wounds, thus bringing the text up to date. The Carrel treatment of wounds is described in detail. The author considers it a most important advance, but designates the method as applying "in a scientific manner the treatment which had been advocated sixty years previously by Lister, namely, the treatment of infection by antisepsis." Other methods of treatment are also described. The book is well arranged, well written and illustrated to good purpose.
