|Title||The Irritable Heart of Soldiers and the Origins of Anglo-American Cardiology|
|Author||Wooley, Charles F.|
During the period from 1861 to 1918, there was much discussion of a condition which incapacitated many thousands of otherwise healthy troops. This condition became known during the 1860s as the irritable heart of soldiers. By the First World War the terminology had changed to soldier's heart, then to neurocirculatory asthenia. In this study the author brings to bear his expertise as an historian, professor of medicine and a former soldier to analyze the condition and to trace the changing medical and social attitudes to it.
