- The auxiliary surgical hospitals (later called Mobile Army Surgical Hospitals) were conceived and developed by DeBakey and
the Surgical Consultants in the first years of World War II. They greatly improved battlefield injury survival rates by getting
surgical care closer to the front lines. Photos like this, taken during the last years of the war, provide a closer look at
the operations of the surgical units.
