    A Medical Emergency
    A Medical Emergency
    Major-General 'Ginger' Burston and the Army Medical Service in World War II
    Australian soldiers and their American Allies won the land war against Japan in the Pacific slands because they were healthier than their enemies. The troops' fighting spirit, their armaments, their naval and air support and their generals were certainly key ingredients in the Allied victory. Without good health, however, these other factors would have been nullified. In World War II the Allies eventually beat the Japanese - a victory based, to a large part, on the success of the Australian Army Medical Service in defeating malaria. Their Japanese counterpart never won this battle. Major - General 'Ginger' Burston led the Army Medical Service throughout the Pacific campaigns. This pivotal book explains how Burston and his medical team kept Allied troops healthy in primitive and hostile conditions and during the greatest medical emergency of World War II - the struggle against malaria. A Medical Emergency tells this remarkable story for the first time.
