WW1 Diseases & Treatments

medicalA few of us were having a discussion about the many incidences of venereal disease among the troops in WW1. Whilst doing some follow-up research I came across this very interesting website which describes the symptoms and treatments of diseases we read about regularly, such as trench fever, shell-shock, venereal disease. It makes for very interesting, though rather gruesome, reading. And helps to explain why the soldiers spent so much time in hospital.
