Katarina Keber, Miha Šimac
The book deals with the health organisation in the rear of the Isonzo Front (1915–1917) and is the first monograph of this kind in Slovenian historiography. The focus is on the provision of health care to the wounded soldiers from the Isonzo Front as well as to the sick and affected by infectious diseases. The book describes military sanitation in the battlefield and health organisation in Ljubljana, which in this “city of military hospitals” comprised not only a garrison hospital but also Red Cross hospitals and other, civilian hospitals that were in 1915 overflown with the wounded and sick from the Isonzo Front. Important substantial emphasis is thus on physicians and hospital attendants, the wounded and sick, their medical treatments and life in hospitals, as well as some infectious diseases that spread in wartime both among soldiers and civilian population.
