Over 8,000 websites created by students around the world who have participated in a ThinkQuest Competition.
The "Medic! Medic" website is designed to provide information on combat medics. Although it is difficult to find "textbook" material on such a specific military position, there is a great deal of anecdotal evidence that describes the important role medics play in wartime. We were fortunate enough to find a number of medics and medical personnel that were willing to share their personal stories with us. This website also has a number of special features that can assist any student or teacher looking for primary sources on war. Most importantly, we were able to acquire actual film footage from World War II that shows the process of gathering the wounded and transporting them to the hospital ship, USS Bountiful (which happens to be the ship that one of our student's great-grandfather served on!) Although, the information on wartime medics is hard to find, we believe that our website covers the topic nicely.
