This book, which is nicely bound and well printed on good paper, is a symposium on war medicine and is divided into three parts: (1) "Surgery," (2) "Aviation and Naval Medicine" and (3) "General Medicine." There are thirty-three articles on surgery, eleven on aviation and naval medicine and thirteen on general medicine. These articles are republished from the Military Surgeon, the British Medical Journal, the American Journal of Surgery, the Lancet and others.
The articles of particular interest to the dermatologist are those on "Treatment of War Burns," "Recognition and First Aid Treatment of Gas Casualties," "The Prophylaxis and Treatment of Epidermophytosis of the Feet" and "Chigger and Jigger Bites."
The material is up-to-date in regard to war medicine, and the articles are clearly and simply written and well illustrated. The book is a valuable addition to the literature for the military physician.
