Malaiia had taken its toll with 120 sick (or every battle casualty and dur- ing the period of the north- west monsoon whale up to 800 inches ol rain swamped the countryside. The new Supreme Allied Commander intended to solve tltese problems. "Doctors may not win the war for said Mountbat- ten, "but they could easily lose it." And with this in mind, be- fore he even left London, he set up a Medical Advisory Di- vision. This division, working c'osely with medical officers in the field, gradually intro- duced new techniques, drugs and methods of treatment. The work paid off. By 1945 the fi- gures were down to ten sick for every battle casual y and the proportion was still de- creasing. The monsoon problem was also attacked before Mount- baUen left London. He decid- ed, against all previous tra- ditions, to keep figh'ing dur- ing the monsoon period.
