It may also be of some interest to the general public as a plain story of one of the many subsidiary enterprises undertaken by the British peoples during the Great War. We hope that the details of the sanitary precautions adopted to prevent the occurrence and spread of typhus and other diseases may perhaps be of use to others who may be called upon in the future to set up hospitals under similar conditions in foreign countries.Our intimate association in war time both with the Serbs and with our Austro-Hungarian enemies gave us an insight into the character of both these nations which was of extreme interest to ourselves and which we have endeavoured to portray in the following pages. Indeed the whole of our years stay in Serbia was a strange mixture of tragedy, comedy and pathos.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
