Dr Emily Mayhew is a military medical historian in residence at the Department for Bioengineering at the Imperial College London, working with staff at The Royal British Legion Centre for Blast Injury Studies. She is a good friend of our team and inspires with her perspective on conflict and scientific challenges and advances. Her latest book ‘A Heavy Reckoning: War, Medicine and Survival in Afghanistan and Beyond’ was published on 25 May 2017. It includes a section on Headley Court and rehabilitation and looks at the physiology of survival and bringing people back from close encounters with death. From WW1 to Afghanistan it gives insights into the frontline of medicine in what we anticipate to be the author’s compelling whilst accessible style.
