The Emergency War Surgery NATO Handbook was developed as a guide for Canadian doctors to treat civilian casualties during a local or national disaster; a wide variety of topics are covered, with special attention paid to the treatment of mass casualties; the topic of response to injuries from nuclear attack is also covered.
NATO stands for the North Atlantic Treaty Organization; it is a political and military alliance of which Canada was an original member; it was formed in 1949 in response to the growing political and military threat of the Soviet Union following the Second World War.
