Forlagets beskrivelse
Excerpt from War Blindness at St. Dunstan's

IF an apology is needed for yet another War book it is, I claim, furnished by the subject-matter of this little work. Everybody knows something about St. Dunstan's, and the late Sir Arthur Pearson, shortly before his sad death, published in his Victory Over Blindness a very complete and detailed history of St. Dunstan's, its life, its work and its aspirations. Nevertheless, nothing has been published with regard to the nature and characters of the blindness on account of which St. Dunstan's came into existence. So long ago as May, 1920, I promised Sir Arthur Pearson that I would try to present the work at St. Dunstan's from a purely medical standpoint, so that there should be some sort of a technical record of Blindness among the British Armies during the Great War. The following pages, delayed by illness and the pressure of heavy work, are the result of this promise; but I am painfully conscious of the inadequate manner in which the task has been fulfilled. Much desirable information with regard to many of the cases has not been obtained, and much pathological investigation has been left untouched. Unfortunately, the exigencies of the times, when one was rushing about from hospital to hospital, prevented full advantage being taken of the wonderful store of material at St. Dunstan's. I can only say that I have done my best, by means of my notes compiled in those critical days, to classify and analyse the cases of War Blindness which came under my care, and to deduce from them certain lessons. For what is lacking I ask indulgence; and such as it is, I Offer this result of my endeavour to the illustrious memory of the Great Founder of St. Dunstan's, a man whose life was.
