£14.99 £4.99

A substantial work of considerable importance to our understanding of the Great War, centred on the Royal Army Medical Corps and The Western Front. By July 1915 a quarter of British doctors had joined up, one tenth having done so in the opening months of the war. The BMA acted as a channel for transmitting army requirements, persuading any sceptics of the validity of military needs, out-and-out mobilisation of the profession was feared as a possible first step to a post-war salaried service. Failure to enrol for the RAMC incurred liability for compulsory combatant service, although appeals were allowed.
