Elizabeth Norman is a best-selling author and historian. Her work focuses on nurses and the role of women in military history. Norman earned a Ph.D. and M.A. from New York University. She is a registered nurse. As an author, Norman has made significant contributions to the field of women's military history. Her work brings to light the often-neglected experiences of women during wartime. Her first book, Women at War, examines the previously untold experience of fifty women who served as nurses during the Vietnam War. Her second book, We Band of Angels, is based on interviews with female nurses who were held captive by the Japanese for three years in Bataan, Philippines during World War II. Norman was the first to speak to these women, known as the Angels of Bataan, about the tragedy they endured. She described the experience of conducting these interviews as, "women talking candidly about women swept up in a lethal enterprise of men." Her third book, Tears in the Darkness, is a history of the Bataan Death March and the American, Filipino, and Japanese combatants who were involved. Her inspiration to write about military nurses came from her experience as a nurse as well as the fact that both her mother and husband have served in the U.S. military.

The stepfather of Nancy Davis Reagan, and father-in-law to US President Ronald Reagan, he headed numerous medical boards, and published a number of articles and medical books. The authors note that "Observations made upon the enormous material afforded by the late war have permitted a revision and correction of many erroneous conceptions of the pathology, physiology and symptomatology of the nervous system. Of particular importance has been the knowledge obtained from a study of the injuries to the spinal cord....a sufficiently lard number of observations have been made to permit us to concur with the conclusions drawn from the study of the material of our allies. Grossly, injuries to the spinal cord may be divided into two classes; those occurring as the result of a direct trauma to the spinal cord, as by a missile, a splinter of bone, concussion or contusion and those to to indirect lesions, the result of compression, edema or a spread of infection. The symptomatology resulting from injuries to the spinal cord is the same whether the lesion is produced by high explosives, machine gun bullets or other missiles."
