The call 'bearers up', bringing the stretcher carriers into the front line, was the last thing a soldier heard in the trenches of the First World War before the command to attack. This account of medical care on the Western Front, from aid posts in the trenches to ambulance trains back home, draws on the eyewitness testimony of stretcher bearers, medical officers, surgeons, chaplains, orderlies and nurses.
