Shell Shock: Paul Dudley White
Cardiologist Paul Dudley White went overseas to France in August 1916 as a member of the supplement to the Third Harvard Unit, working for several months with the B.E.F. at No. 22 General Hospital. He then returned the following year as part of the Massachusetts General Hospital unit at the A.E.F.'s Base Hospital No. 6.
White's war diaries provide a detailed and vivid account of his medical work and hospital experiences in Camiers. The passage displayed recounts a case of shell shock following an attack during the Battle of the Somme.
