On the basis of material from previously under-used sources, we offer one of the first studies undertaken in Spain of military history and the history of medicine, with particular emphasis on hospital care. Our main contribution lies in the data about diseases suffered by campaign troops, and about the principal characteristics of hospitalization, on the Catalonian Front during the Nine Years' War (1689-1697). This war is considered the largest armed conflict to have taken place in the Iberian Peninsula during the reign of Charles II (1665-1700).
