Abstract

This chapter in the edited volume Peace, War, and Gender from Antiquity to the Present: Cross-Cultural Perspectives examines the dangerous, front-line work of British volunteers in the mobile field hospitals following the armies to the battlefields during the First Balkan War and the Serbian campaign of World War I. These hospitals, originally called ambulances, were according to the author part of the 'Geneva idea' providing medical aid to wounded and sick soldiers on and near the battlefield under an internationally recognized sign of neutrality, the Red Cross, and by 1878, Red Crescent.
