The editors have selected over 400 archival prints, photographs, and documents to portray how American doctors, dentists, nurses, and pharmacists progressed from the rigors of 18th-century colonial times, through the challenges of 19th-century Western expansion and urbanization, into the almost explosive advances in the first three decades of the 20th century. In these pages you will discover how an extraordinary group of 18th-century Philadelphians - Benjamin Franklin and Doctors Rush, Shippen, Morgan, and Physick - made that city arguably 'the cradle of American medical and pharmaceutical practice.'"

Otherwise, Jacket, boards and pages are clean, unmarked, brightly colored, tightly bound and sharp cornered. Book Review by From Library Journal: "The popular television series M*A*S*H owes its historical accuracy in part to Apel, chief surgeon of the 8076th Mobile Army Surgical Hospital in 1951 and consultant on the show. Here Apel (with son Pat) expands on the themes common to the television episodes and familiar to viewers: the severe working conditions, the irreverence hospital staff often had for army protocol, and the insufficiency of necessary supplies. Apel outlines the historical and political forces that created these conditions and, ironically, the considerable advances in emergency medical care made during the Korean War. Although his work is heavily autobiographical, Apel draws from primary and secondary Korean War literature to provide statistics and documentation. Personal photos appear throughout the text. Well written and researched, this book provides entertainment as well as historical value and is appropriate for both public and academic settings. "
