The Surgeon and the Warrior: how Archibald McIndoe transformed the Royal Air Force and the Air Minis

A lecture from the series 'Surgeons at War: Trafalgar to Tikrit'.

No other surgeon in medical history has had the power and influence of
Archibald McIndoe in the Second World War. McIndoe formed a unique relationship with one of the three most powerful men in Britain, Chief of the Air Staff, Charles Portal. Through him he secured an unprecedented range of resources to ensure the reconstruction of the lives of his "Guinea Pig Club" patients and establish an exemplary model for casualty provision in modern war.
