War during the Regency era wasn’t pretty and neither were the wounds and treatments soldiers and seamen suffered in the heat of battle. Even if a soldier survived his injury, there was no guarantee he would live through the many infectious diseases which ran rampant through the military hospitals. Surgeons were ill-equipped to deal with the mass numbers of soldiers in need of treatment and did the best they could with the limited knowledge and tools they possessed.
Battlefield Medicine will take you through the ins and outs of British Army and Navy medicine during the late Georgian and Regency eras. The training and techniques of surgeons, as well as the medicines and pain relief available, field hospital practices and the effects of infection and disease on the healthy and wounded alike will all be explored. Firsthand accounts of military surgeons and their patients will help provide a full picture of medicine in the time before antibiotics or germ theory, as this class examines this bloody, horrific and often fatal aspect of Regency life.
A lifelong history buff, Georgie Lee hasn’t given up hope that she will one day inherit a title and a manor house. Until then, she fulfills her dreams of lords, ladies and a season in London through her stories. When not writing, she can be found reading non-fiction history or watching any movie with a costume and an accent. Please visit www.georgie-lee.com to learn more about Georgie and her books.
