Resistance and reform: transformation in the British Army Medical Services 1854-1914

Andrew Duncan

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (peer-reviewed)peer-review


The chapter outlines key medical and sanitary developments in the latter part of the nineteenth century, and the links between these and military health. While important, these developments alone were not enough to transform the health of the army. Only with a shift in attitudes among combat officers did the results achieved by the new developments match their promised potential.
