Adams calculates that 300,000 Union soldiers lost their lives during the wa. George W. Adams was Chairman of the History Department at Southern Illinois University when I was an undergraduate there.

In addition, there were a startling 400,000 wounded or injured and almost 6,000,000 cases of illness. Undoubtedly, behind the sickness and mortality statistics of the Civil War lie ignorance and inefficiency. Not only was I a history major, I had just been discharged from the Army having served three years as a medic.

We broke from the wood line and ran towards the disorganized cavalrymen. I fired my rifle and continued on a few steps. I paused, realizing that I was in the midst of the Union cavalrymen with the other men of my unit coming up behind me.

The state of medical knowledge at the time of the Civil War was extremely primitive. Doctors did not understand infection, and did little to prevent it. It was a time before antiseptics, and a time when there was no attempt to maintain sterility during surgery. While the typical soldier was at very high risk of being shot and killed in combat, he faced an even greater risk of dying from disease.

Similar in scope to H. H. Cunningham's Doctors in Gray, George Worthington Adams' Doctors in Blue, originally published more than forty years ago and now available for the first time in a paperback edition, remains the definitive work on the medical history of the Union army.

I surmise many Civil War experts do not know about the monumental overall effort to treat wounded soldiers during the war.

This effort came from industry, from the medical profession, and so profoundly, volunteers!

The "comfort" level of the average Northern soldier may be higher than some expect, although in too many cases the conditions were totally appalling...and no Sanitary Commission could possibly help these cases.

There is much medical science presented - along with a very detailed accounting of old and new methodology, at the time. The healthcare "industry" actually took a great leap forward from the treatment history of these wounded warriors.

The historian will be fascinated by the many photos included. Makes one realize this was the first war that "the media" concentrated on...except that the hospitalization of the combat and disease victims was perhaps the only non-mythic representation.

This study makes one realize that if the Northern fighters often suffered greatly, what happened down South, without the capacity of the Northern big cities.

Perfect for civil war buffs, although it is mostly filled with statistics and rather dreary discussion about how the military and people dragged their feet about getting these folks decent care, but some of the stuff may still be relevant in disasters, such as the fact a huge problem was they did not utilize splinting nearly enough, and this could have helped with reducing amputations, or that surgery down OUTSIDE had less infection than when done indoors. Also discussions on what injuries there were and you may be surprised.

Did not read it but gave it to my doctor as a retirement gift. He said it was very good.

This book was a requirement for my class. I didn't really read it page to page. I used it as a reference.

George W. Adams was Chairman of the History Department at Southern Illinois University when I was an undergraduate there.
As a student of Dr. Adams, I had the intestinal fortitude to review his book as a class project.
Not only was I a history major, I had just been discharged from the Army having served three years as a medic.
I was fairly critical of Dr. Adams book. Although history is its long suit, it falls a little short in the "medical facts" department.
For example, he glossed over the infection which could be caused by a slow moving minie-ball travelling through already soiled clothing. Without the benefits of anti-biotics, this was one of the leading causes of death during the Civil War.
Nonetheless, it is an excellent treatment of a rather specialized subject.
P.S. Dr. Adams gave my an "A" on my project.
