DATA REGARDING MEDICAL SUPPORT OF THE MEDIEVAL ROMANIAN STATES’ ARMIES

I considered necessary, useful and relevant, a short synthetic analysis regarding the workings of the sanitary service in medieval Romanian state armies. I judge that the errors, mistakes and the successes in the medical field, of the great battles and past military campaigns can serve as history lessons as well as life and practice lessons to the new generations of military doctors.
