Nikolay F. ZHARKOV, doctor, the member of the board of Saint Petersburg Orthodox Doctors Society named after St. Luke (Voyno-Yasenetsky) and Tatiana V. ZHARKOVA, doctor, the full member of Saint Petersburg ODS

The World War I was for Russia just another defensive war, and the Great War itself was practically forgotten. The report tells about the role of chaplains; who accomplished their duties as well as showed an example of courage and valour, replacing the dead commanders, as the need arose. A considerable part takes the description of the outstanding inventions the army medical officers developed in the forefront and in the rear. The authors hope that the chaplains’ feats and the names of the distinguished doctors, front-line specialists will not be forgotten.
