Tracing the 90-year history of 212th MASH, the U.S. Army`s oldest deployable hospital, this book looks at how medicine and the military have changed in these decades. Recognizing the challenges and accomplishments of the men and women of the 12th Evac and and 212th MASH, the text pays tribute to each generation of these "skilled and resolute" soldiers as they worked to save the lives of fellow US service members, allies, prisoners, and local civilians, from World War I Europe to recent conflicts in the Near East.

Reviews

According to the Army Surgeon General:

"Dr Sanders Marble, Senior Historian with the AMEDD Center of History and Heritage, has insightfully detailed their story…This book is more than a narrative of what one distinguished unit accomplished. These pages are filled with personal insights on how individuals overcame hardship and circumstances to provide the best care possible at the time. This book will make you think about how our healthcare team was brought together and how it sustained its effectiveness during varied and prolonged operations."
