26 editions published between 1983 and 2015 in English and held by 1,347 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Here is a story of the long interaction between man, land, and climate in the American South. It is a tale of exploitation and erosion, of destruction, disease, and defeat, but also of the persistent search for knowledge and wisdom. It is a story whose villains were also its victims and sometimes its heroes."--Jacket

"The Medical Department: Medical Service in the War Against Japan is a comprehensive organizational and operational history of medical support in the Asian-Pacific theaters in World War II. The narrative begins with medical prewar planning and ends with the establishment of public health and welfare in occupied Japan. In the context of fierce combat operations waged in the geographical area extending from Australia to Alaska and from the Gilbert Islands to Burma, we focused on how the Army Medical Department coped with the great distances, diverse climates, disease epidemics, grave logistical problems, and rapidly changing circumstances to maintain the fighting strength of American troops. Flexible organization, ingenuity, and the latest scientific advances helped medical personnel to support infantry combat teams on isolated islands or in dense jungles, to evacuate casualties over difficult terrain and then by sea or air, to adapt medical support to amphibious operations, and to prevent and control disease. Cooperation with the U.S. Navy and with the Allied medical services, especially in the Southwest Pacific, also is covered."--Preface
The medical department : medical service in the European theater of operations by Graham A Cosmas( Book )

10 editions published between 1991 and 1992 in English and held by 752 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Describes how the military medical system organized, trained, and deployed; how hospitals were built and supplies assembled and moved forward; and how casualties were treated and evacuated from the field of battle. The volume supports the proposition that the experience of medical personnel in war directly stimulates advances in medical science. The principles of medical organization remain of vital importance, the exploits of the doctors, corpsmen, and medical support units providing a model for the planning and organization of medical support in today's Army
Fighting for life : American military medicine in World War II by Albert E Cowdrey( Book )

6 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 500 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cowdrey tells the remarkable story of how American units developed and implemented new technology under dire pressures, succeeding so brilliantly that World War II became the first American war in which more men died in combat than of disease. Penicillin brought the antibiotic revolution to the battlefield, air evacuation plucked the wounded from jungles and deserts, and a unique system brought blood, still fresh from America, to our soldiers all over the world. Surgeons working just behind the front lines stabilized the worst cases, while physicians and public health experts suppressed epidemics and cured exotic diseases. Psychiatrists, nurses and medics all performed heroic feats amidst unspeakable conditions. Together, these men and women improvised medical miracles on the battlefield that could not have been imagined by practitioners in peacetime
