The naval section describes the development of the naval medical service between the wars, its expansion in 1939 and later, and its special problems and achievements in worldwide service on sea and land.

The air force story starts with the very beginnings of its medical service in 1921 and goes on to describe the wartime work of its medical men and women at home and abroad.

The third major section of the book deals with the various women’s services in the AAMC and, in particular, the nursing service.
