‘Medic!’ An insight into Scottish field surgeons, physicians, and medical provision during the Thirty Years’ War, 1618-1648
MetadataShow full item record
This article investigates the provision of medical care for Scottish soldiers engaged in the Thirty Years' War. It is based on archival research in Scotland, England, Denmark, Sweden and the Netherlands. It shows that factors such as attrition and rates of pay prevented the adequate provision of trained medical men, despite the wishes of the commanders who led them.
