Welcome to the website of Leo van Bergen, medical historian. On this site you will find information on Leo, articles (and even some books) he has written, mainly in Dutch, but also quite a few in English. The main theme is the history of war and medicine, with a focus on the First World War. But other themes are mentioned as well, such as tropical medicine, medical technology or university history. Enjoy.
