Summary

The candid memoir of a young doctor who reluctantly accepts a military commission and spends a year behind the front lines of the Vietnam War. Assigned to the marine camp at Phu Bai, Dr. John A. Parrish confronted all manner of medical trauma, quickly shedding the navet of a new medical intern.
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.
