📒Surgeons At War ✍ Matthew H. Kaufman
✏Surgeons at War Book Summary : Kaufman examines the training and status of British military surgeons during the late 18th and 19th centuries. Their management of the sick and wounded during the wars with France leading up to and including the Peninsular War is also described. He concludes with an analysis of the medical problems associated with the Crimean War. Using important contemporary texts, Kaufman describes the personalities who served in the British Army Medical Department during the late 18th and 19th centuries, when diseases caused a much higher mortality than injuries sustained in battle. Many military surgeons were only poorly trained, and the management of the sick and wounded only gradually improved over this period despite significant advances in medicine, surgery, and hygene. Government spending cuts after the Peninsular War greatly depleted the medical service of the army so that by the time of the Crimean War it was unable to cope with a European-style war. Deficiencies were recognized and, in the case of the medical services, this led to the establishment of the Army Medical School in 1860. This analysis should be of particular interest to serving military medical officers and to historians and other researchers interested in the management of 18th and 19th century armies in times of peace and war.

📒British Military Operations In Egypt And The Sudan ✍ Harold E. Raugh Jr.
✏British Military Operations in Egypt and the Sudan Book Summary : The British Army's campaigns in Egypt and the Sudan from 1882 to 1899 were among the most dramatic and hard-fought in British military history. In 1882, the British sent an expeditionary force to Egypt to quell the Arabic Revolt and secure British control of the Suez Canal, its lifeline to India. The enigmatic British Major General Charles G. Gordon was sent to the Sudan in 1884 to study the possibility of evacuating Egyptian garrisons threatened by Muslim fanatics, the dervishes, in the Sudan. While the dervishes defeated the British forces on a number of occasions, the British eventually learned to combat the insurrection and ultimately, largely through superior technology and firepower, vanquished the insurgents in 1898. British Operations in Egypt and the Sudan: A Selected Bibliography enumerates and generally describes and annotates hundreds of contemporary, current, and hard-to-find books, journal articles, government documents, and personal papers on all aspects of British military operations in Egypt and the Sudan from 1882 to 1899. Arranged chronologically and topically, chapters cover the various campaigns, focusing on specific battles, leading military personalities, and the contributions of imperial nations as well as supporting services of the British Army. This definitive volume is an indispensable reference for researching imperialism, colonial history, and British military operations, leadership, and tactics.

📒Inniskilling Diaries 1899 1903 ✍ Martin Cassidy
✏Inniskilling Diaries 1899 1903 Book Summary : By skillful use of three contemporary diaries, the author has created a fascinating and highly readable account of a famous infantry Regiment, the Royal Inniskiling Fusiliers, in the Second Boer War. The three diarists, two officers and a private, saw the campaign from very different perspectives. The book traces the progress of the Fusiliers from first mobilisation at Mullinger, Ireland in October 1899, through the poignant send off at Queenstown the voyage to South Africa. Once ashore, the Regiment was to be in the thick of the action at Colenso, Spion Kop, Vaal Krantz, the Relief of Ladysmith and then onto the Transvaal and Orange River Coloney before returning home four years after their departure.
