With this memoir, he crafts a haunting, humane portrait of one man’s agonizing confrontation with war. With a wife and two children awaiting his return home, the young physician lives through the most turbulent and formative year of his life - and finds himself molded into a true doctor by the raw tragedy of the battlefield. His endless work is punctuated only by the arrival of the next helicopter bearing more casualties, and the stark announcements: “12 litter-borne wounded, 20 ambulatory wounded, and 5 dead.”

Might be Bogus
There were so many mispronounced Vietnamese cities that I began to wonder if the reader knew what he was talikng about. (Hue is NOT pronouced "hugh". It is "way" )This was a major military location. It could not be mistaken.
It is a mediocre book at best but you have to wonder if it was all made up.

Quite a read...
It was a wonderfully touching and personal story. It really brought the horrors of war to a personal level.
