JOLLY, Douglas Waddell
London: Hamish Hamilton Medical Books, 1940.
This book " became required reading in the US Army Medical Service during the Second World War. According to one US authority, C.E. Welch, Jolly’s methods ‘undoubtedly contributed more to the saving of lives of patients with abdominal wounds than any other single factor’. In Korea and Vietnam the mobile hospitals used by the US Army and its allies were based directly on the mobile surgical units that Jolly described in his book" (https://nzhistory.govt.nz/people/douglas-jolly).
