Sir Reginald Watson-Jones (1902-72) was orthopaedic surgeon to King George VI and director of orthopaedics at The London Hospital. Fractures and Joint Injuries, which first appeared in 1940, was reprinted and translated many times, the seventh edition appearing in 2009. Its clear and accessible language meant that it became a valued guidebook to field surgeons in World War II. The author notes in his preface that war stimulates progress, particularly in surgery. He was knighted for his contribution to Britain's war effort in 1945.
