Medical Locations and Interventions

The soldiers, on both sides of the war, fighting was constantly interrupted by health concerns, injury, sickness, and death.  The deplorable conditions in the trenches; never-ending stress associated with small arms, shell, and gas attacks; rapid spread of diseases like flu and measles; and the ever present stench of death, meant that not one person— whether engaged on the battlefield or praying at home-- would be left, untouched by the war.
