La prima guerra mondiale nella storia dell’Ambulanza

La prima guerra mondiale nella storia dell’Ambulanza

Non sono tanti gli scatti che sono arrivati fino ad oggi dal 1914, ma l’agenzia fotografica Getty Images li ha salvati e ordinati per darci la testimonianza di cosa è stata la prima guerra mondiale e quanto dolore e quanta morte il primo conflitto abbia portato agli esseri umani.

C’è anche modo di vedere come i soccorritori e i medici abbiano lavorato per lottare contro la morte e salvare le vite dei feriti durante gli scontri in trincea. E per capire come erano le prime ambulanze del nuovo secolo, i mezzi che in guerra dovevano servire per ricoverare i pazienti. Fra le fonti anche l’Archivio Centrale dello Stato (foto di copertina).
