But this drop applied mainly to soliders in barracks. Soliders on campaign, especially in the tropics, continued to die from disease at rates as high as ever. This book examines the practice of military medicine during the conquest of Africa, especially in the 1880s and 1890s.

Curtin examines what was done, what was not done, and the impact of doctors successes and failures on the willingness of Europeans to embark on imperial adventures.
