Description

Due to the advancement of arms, warfare during the First World War was especially destructive compared to previous wars. The use of arms such as machine guns and cannons led soldiers to suffer from major injuries. This artillery produced injuries for which soldiers needed advanced care to return to normal function. Also, soldiers were particularly vulnerable to blows to the head and face due to the use of trenches. Healing and re-entrance into society required creativity and progress in the field of maxillofacial surgery and also provoked artistic innovation.
