Summary, etc.:
Captain Donald E. Hall, in his special study on the 1st Medical Group in World War II, reminds the readers that procedures for treating the wounded have evolved considerably since those days when death or amputation seemed the foregone alternatives for a serious wound to an appendage. By World War II, medical support provided by the U.S. Army in combat had modified extensively and employed multiple echelons of health care. Advances in medicine, medical science, and medical treatment also had improved the care of soldiers wounded under the dangerous and unpredictble conditions of the modern battlefield.
