A Medical Emergency. Major-General 'Ginger' Burston and the Army Medical Service in World War II, Howie-Willis, Ian
6398 Howie-Willis, Ian A Medical Emergency. Major-General 'Ginger' Burston and the Army Medical Service in World War II
Sydney Big Sky Publishing 2012 192194157X / 9781921941573 1st Edition Hardback 
Large octavo size [16x24cm approx].Near Fine copy in Near Fine dustjacket. DJ now protected in purpose-made plastic sleeve. An excellent copy. Illustrated with Black and White Photographs and Maps. 487 pages Australian soldiers and their American Allies won the land war against Japan in the Pacific islands because they were healthier than their enemies. The troops’ fighting spirit, their armaments, their naval and air support and their generals were certainly key ingredients in the Allied victory. Without good health, however, these other factors would have been nullified. Malaria, the great scourge of armies throughout history, threatened the health of the Allies and the Japanese alike. The army that could beat malaria would also defeat its military foe because troops shivering, sweating and shaking with malarial fever cannot shoot straight, let alone fight. In World War II the Allies eventually beat the Japanese, a victory based, to a large part, on the success of the Australian Army Medical Service in defeating malaria. Their Japanese counterpart never won this battle. Major-General ‘Ginger’ Burston led the Army Medical Service throughout the Pacific campaigns. This book explains how Burston and his medical team kept Allied troops healthy in primitive and hostile conditions and during the greatest medical emergency of World War II, the struggle against malaria. For the first time this book tells this remarkable story and brings to life the struggle of ‘Ginger’ Burston and his Medical Service kept the troops healthy and kept them fighting. ID296178
