The Division of Medical Sciences of the National Research Council has furnished the medical departments of the United States Army and Navy with the information, in compact form, necessary to persons practicing military surgery. The subcommittee which covers the field of ophthalmology consists of Drs. H. S. Gradle as chairman, W. L. Benedict, S. R. Gifford, P. C. Kronfeld and L. T. Post, with W. F. Hughes Jr. and Alan C. Woods as contributors. As the committee states in the preface, the main purpose of this manual is to instruct the nonspecialist who at the battle front requires knowledge of the early care of ocular wounds and of the treatment of the usual acute inflammations of the eye. The subject matter is presented in the simplest and most practical manner in a clear, explicit and brief text, with few illustrations and with an outline of the simplest but necessary treatment.
