Over the centuries from the Revolution to 2005, military medics have remained true to a fundamental principle: to care for those who face the perils of service to the nation. This is true whether the harm comes from enemy action or debilitating diseases. Their dedication is constant, unvarying, and effective.

Medics at War presents their achievements in 50,000 words reinforced by 220 images.
