The Beginnings of Modern Military Medicine During the Crimean War (1855-1856): Scutari and Its Hospitals by Sidney Godolphin Osborne (1808-1889)
|Author: ||Rogal, Samuel J.|
This volume begins with an introductory essay providing "background to the Scutari hospitals: an outline of events leading to and during the war in the Russian Crimea; an overview of mid-nineteenth-century Scutari; and discussions of the careers of Osborne and a small group of principal players in the military and political game of the Crimean War.
Then follow the texts of Osborne's letters to the London Times and the complete volume of his Scutari and Its Hospitals--both of which have been complemented by biographical and explanatory historical notes." -Samuel J. Rogal
