War, Health and Medicine

Professor Mark Harrison

During 1914-18, medicine and health were critical issues in all countries and in all armed forces. 

This lecture draws comparisons between different theatres of the war and seeks to explain the different degrees of success with which armies dealt with the medical problems of war. It shows the importance not only of technical and geographical factors but of the growing politicisation of medicine, domestically and internationally.
