    The call 'bearers up' that brought 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 draws on eyewitness testimony to tell the stories of stretcher bearers, medical officers, surgeons, chaplains, orderlies and nurses and describe how they dealt with the overwhelming number of casualties and the horrific injuries.
