Acknowledgments

Without the contribution of the authors of this book, made with no material reward and at the sacrifice of time and expenditure of energy which professional men can ill afford, there would not have been this history of surgery in World War II, and the many valuable lessons learned in the surgical care of battle casualties would not have been recorded.

The counsel and assistance of the Advisory Editorial Board in many matters is equally and gratefully recognized. Members of this board, individually and collectively, have given generously of their knowledge and experience in a consultative and advisory capacity.

Much credit is due Miss Elizabeth M. McFetridge, associate editor, for her skill and untiring labor in consolidating, organizing, rewriting, and perfecting the manuscripts for this book.

Grateful acknowledgment is given to the following personnel of the Medical Statistics Division, Office of The Surgeon General, for their review of statistical data in part II of this volume: Mr. E. L. Hamilton, chief; Mr. A. J. McDowell, assistant chief; Mr. M. C. Rossoff, assistant chief, Statistical Analysis Branch; and staff members.

All illustrations were prepared for publication by Mr. R. Pierce Thompson, under the direction of Mr. Herman Van Cott, chief, Medical Illustration Service, Armed Forces Institute of Pathology.
