Yellow cloth on boards. School library evidence. At first glance this book appears intended as an effort to inspire young people to enter the military as medical officers. However, the text is plodding to the point of boredom. William Gorgas emerged from the South to active duty in Cuba, where he and others battled the fly that brings yellow fever. Later he worked in Panama and Africa. 151 pp.
