Medicine in the crusades: Warfare, wounds and the medieval surgeon.

Cambridge, England: Cambridge University Press, 2005.

The first book published on any aspect of medicine in the crusades. "Focusing on injuries and their surgical treatment, Piers D. Mitchell considers medical practitioners, hospitals on battlefields and in towns, torture and mutilation, emergency and planned surgical procedures, bloodletting, analgesia and anesthesia. He provides an assessment of the exchange of medical knowledge that took place between East and West in the crusades, and of the medical negligence legislation for which the kingdom of Jerusalem was famous" (publisher).
