- “The Army’s “Emergency War Surgery” has been a staple combat/austere medical reference and until now, the latest edition (3rd) was from 2004. I found the updated (4th) 2014 edition here, which includes the many lessons learned during the recent wars: http://www.cs.amedd.army.mil/borden/Portlet.aspx?ID=cb88853d-5b33-4b3f-968c-2cd95f7b7809 The entire book is available as a single .epub or .mobi file, then each chapter is available as a separate PDF file. However I haven’t found the whole book in one PDF file.” – Mike
