The Elements of Military Hygiene; Especially Arranged for Officers, and Men of the Line (Classic Reprint)

P. M. Ashburn


Excerpt from The Elements of Military Hygiene; Especially Arranged for Officers, and Men of the Line

Since the first appearance of this book there has been a notable and gratifying increase in the interest that line officers and men have manifested in matters of hygiene and sanitation, and a corresponding increase in the effectiveness of disease - preventing measures. That this improvement has occurred is not necessarily evidence that the book has been instrumental in bringing it about, but expressions of opinion from various officers have led me to think it a possible factor, and have in that way encouraged me to revise and in parts rewrite it, while a supplementary chapter has been added, in the belief that interest in the subject entitles the reader to a knowledge of advances more recently made, and in the hope that such interest and the usefulness of the book may be increased.
