Summary

"Blood, Sweat and Fears describes those medical practitioners and medical students connected to South Australia who served in the armed forces, at home or abroad, during what we now know as World War 1. They range from 18-66 years of age and from student to professor. Each is described in a one page biography; there are over 200 biographies. Some were to distinguish themselves in action with high military decorations and some were to distinguish themselves in their later medical careers. The Australian medical colleges in medicine, surgery, women's health, radiology and anaesthesia drew their early leaders from these South Australians." -- cover description.
