Medicine and Surgery in the Crimea

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

At the time of the Crimean War in the mid-nineteenth century, both medicine and surgery were limited in their scope. Nevertheless, the 700 British medical officers that took part in this war met with many seriously wounded soldiers and a huge amount of disease. Find out about the challenges they faced, often under highly adverse conditions, through contemporary descriptions and images, and discover why three received the Victoria Cross for valour on the field of battle.
