In this super-exciting special episode the Poor Historians interview author Dr. Lindsey Fitzharris about her new book, The Facemaker.
The Facemaker centers on the incredible achievements of Dr. Harold Gillies, a plastic surgeon in WWI who not only helped restore the identities of injured soldiers with severe facial injuries, but developed a multitude of plastic surgery techniques in doing so. He helped legitimize the specialty as well--believe it or not, at one time it was not highly regarded.
In this episode, Dr. Fitzharris will give us all a new perspective as the author of this work. We highly encourage you not to miss this one!
