Since I've found more down time to read, and since it seems halfway appropriate at the time, I've been looking for some reading material on disaster and military medicine, ie history of medicine in Napoleonic Wars, field treatment in American wars, disasters, etc. Sounds kind of broad but if anyone has suggestions, feel free to share.

"Hurt" by Catherine Musemeche and "From Last Hope to First Aid" by Francesco Adami are two you might enjoy.

Sorry, a little late to the game.

Medical and Surgical History of the War of the Rebellion 1861-1865 it's a large multi volume set filled with cases and diagrams, basically only available online access through the NIH. The actual hard copies and reprints are very pricey.

It always amazes me what they actually did, versus the mythology of amputation crazy surgeons.
