Abstract Armies may successfully prosecute a war without a signal corps, without engineers, without artillery, aviation or cavalry—even without a finance department— but it is said that wars cannot be successfully conducted in the absence of a quartermasters' corps or a medical department. Wars have been lost because of failure of the latter to cope successfully with problems of health of the combatants, failure in transporting of medical supply or in evacuation or inability to combat infection. Until recent years more soldiers died as a result of disease incident to combat than as a result of enemy action.
