The Royal Army Medical Corps (RAMC) supported the British Army throughout the First World War, treating sick and wounded military personnel. The military nursing services and voluntary medical personnel provided vital support to RAMC medical units and hospitals, ensuring the effective treatment of casualties.

The size of the armies, the intensity of the combat, the power of modern weaponry and the global nature of conflict meant the number of casualties proved challenging for the medical services of all combatants, including the RAMC.

A range of previously unpublished photographs, in thematic chapters considering aspects such as service in the United Kingdom, global warfare and commemoration, illustrate experiences of RAMC and medical personnel during the First World War.

The book contributes to wider understanding of the RAMC and medical services in the First World War, and will be of relevance to readers with an interest in medical, social and photographic history.

Timothy McCracken's latest book is confirmation of his skill in bringing to life what otherwise might have been an academic study. He accomplishes this in a number of ways, mostly by the extensive use of a range of previously unpublished photographs.

Eskdale & Liddesdale Advertiser 10/1/18 - reviewed by Ron Addison, Langholm

The author deserves the credit of making the men and women serving in the RAMC visible...
"Images Of War" shows the faces behind the abbreviation RAMC - that is the meaning of this book.

Dumfries and Galloway Standard

This is very much a story of the people, those who made up the medical services which supported the British and Commonwealth soldiers wherever in the world they served during WW1.
