In this talk, Canada’s top war historian, Tim Cook, will discuss his latest book Lifesavers and Body Snatchers, on how the carnage of modern battle gave birth to revolutionary life-saving innovations. It brings to light shocking revelations of the ways the brutality of combat and the necessity of agonizing battlefield decisions led to unimaginable strain for men and women of medicine who fought to save the lives of soldiers during the Great War from 1914 to 1918.
