Harrison has a keen eye for societal, political, circumstantial and ideological influences on medical policy ... he makes perfectly clear the enormous importance of medicine and healthcare in general for waging (a victorious) war ... an excellent book. * Leo van Bergen, Medicine Conflict and Survival *
the story Harrison tells is compelling and will be immensely useful to future scholars of medicine and the First World War. * Tracey Loughran, Social History of Medicine *
