This book is an important contribution to military medicine. Beginning with the origins of an Air Force medical service in World War I, it describes the growth and present status of the School of Aviation Medicine, aeromedical research and development, air evacuation, and the medical support of air combat in various theaters of operations in World War II. It is well illustrated and has an index and a glossary. It will be of interest chiefly to flight surgeons and medical historians.
