Out of print since 1861, this is the story of the founding father of the Royal Army Medical Corps. James McGrigor rose from comparatively humble origins in Aberdeen to become the man who revolutionised military medicine in the British army. In between, he survived battle, typhoid and shipwreck, and gained the friendship of the Duke of Wellington, as well as the respect and admiration of his men. His autobiography is a fascinating combination of military and medical history, and reads like an adventure story.
Mary McGrigor has annotated the original autobiography with the results of her extensive researches into the life and work of her husband's remarkable ancestor. The result provides the definitive portrait of a man far ahead of his time.
