Medicine came on in leaps and bounds during the First World War.

Things like:

Blood Transfusion
Amputations
Skin grafts / facial reconstructions
Artificial limbs

These were all developed as the war dragged on. There was also a lot of work done on mental health during the war - treatment of shell shock etc.

Take a look at these pages as well as the ones previously linked to:

You can also access materials about ursing in the First World War from this list of links:
