In this article in the Journal, a medical expert praised the effort that Germany had put into the subject of war surgery over the last few decades. They have developed not only new weapons to destroy lives, the expert said, but also explored how to heal the wounds their guns make. In German clinics and medical departments there were always doctors from all over the world seeking to learn about German war surgery. Germany had sent new weapons, but also proper dressings to other countries. Based on their training, German war surgeons would only lose 10% of their patients, whereas 90% had died in the Balkan war because they were not properly attended to by medics.
