This book covers the carnage on the Western Front from 1916-1918. Likeman provides mini-biographies of each of the more than 700 doctors who served on the Western Front and in the training establishments and hospitals in the UK. Each officer's medical qualifications and career highlights are listed together with any honours and awards, and numerous photographs.
In addition to these accounts, the book also contains chapters on the Australian Imperial Force in England from 1915-1919, and nominal rolls of the Australian medical officers who served in sea transport and in the RAMC.
There is also a section of mini-biographies of the Australian women doctors who served overseas in theatres of war between 1914-1918, and AAMC medical officers who took part in the Samoa Relief Force in 1918.
