<?Pub Inc> This MA report analyses British military medicine during the long eighteenth century through an examination of the interaction between preventative and reactionary forms of medical treatment. Study of three theatres of military conflict, the American Revolution (1775-83), the Napoleonic Wars (1803-15), and the West Indies during the period from (1775-1815), will showcase the obstacles to successful medical treatment and their solutions while illuminating the integral relationship between preventative and reactionary medicine. Analysis will include a focus on the provisioning of supplies, threats to health, and administrative mismanagement and the resolution of these difficulties through transport reform, prophylactic treatment, and the reorganization of the administrative system. This investigation will argue that experience in preventative and reactionary treatment methods and military administration and supply gained from previous theatres of conflict were successfully implemented during the Peninsular Campaign (1808-14) of the Napoleonic Wars and thus simultaneously reflected continuity and change within the medical system.
