Abstract:

"This volume is one of several planned for a series on the history of the Medical Department of the United States Army during World War II. It deals primarily with the logistics of hospitalization and evacuation. As used here, therefore, the term "hospitalization" means all of the instrumentalities -- buildings, equipment, supplies, and personnel -- which directly served sick and wounded soldiers ' in the attempt to restore them to physical fitness; and the term "evacuation" includes all of the means necessary to move patients from one place to another, whether from the battlefield to a hospital in the rear of combat zones, or from one hospital to another in the United States. The professional care of patients is not discussed in this volume... Nor are details of the internal administration and operation of hospitals and evacuation units described here except to the extent necessary to explain the evolution of general policies and practices affecting the system of hospitalization and evacuation as a whole. Also, this volume confines itself almost entirely to events in the zone of interior (that is, the United States)."--Author's original Preface.
