- DescriptionTells the story of those brave men - and, increasingly in this day and age, women - who go to war armed with bandages not bombs, scalpels not swords, and put saving life above taking life. Their job is to put themselves in the heart of danger - to run into battle to rescue the wounded and to risk their own lives to try and save the dying.

A well written account of the Medical Services throughout various conflicts
Brilliant! a well written history of the R.A.M.C. telling of the hard, brave work done by the medical services. I found it easy to read, unlike some books that are "hard going" and difficult to get into. As an ex Army Medic I recognised some names and experiences, especially the way medics were usually treated as lower class. The book tells how, despite lacking equipment and in appaling conditions, the medics overcome hardships and ultimately gain the respect of those they treat. "In Arduis Fidelis"
