ABSTRACT

This volume contains a great deal of information of interest to the practicing physician, to those interested in sanitation and to epidemiologists. The entire problem of sanitation as carried out in the World War is given in detail. This includes selection of camp sites, housing, food, disposal of garbage and sewage, water supply, control of flies, mosquitoes and vermin, hospital isolations, physical examinations for detection of disease in its incipiency, and other problems.

A chapter is devoted to the influenza epidemic of 1918, showing the rapidity with which disease spreads and the futility of attempts to control it.

The rations of various organizations and changes from time to time are discussed in detail. The rations of the United States army are compared with those of the English, German and French armies.

It is impossible to give in a brief review an insight into the great work done by the Department
