My husband only likes to read non-fiction books, and he is very interested in WWII. This book is about a medic, and is very interesting.Don't buy it if you aren't interested in graphic descriptions of wounds! My husband found it very engrossing, so I am very happy with it.

The approach to writing a history of battles and war varies greatly between authors. Robert Smith has recorded a very personal account from the perspective of one who finds no glory in war, but knows first-hand the honor and heroism in the individual warriors. He tells his tale with none of the sensationalism or self-interest found in too many of today's autobiographical pieces on war. Within his pages you experience the fundamental transition from civilian to soldier, the surrealism of the first encounters with war, and the necessary adapting and surviving through the horrors and the humors that the soldier must endure to survive in war. He did not go to war for thrill or reward, but like so many young citizen-soldiers as a matter of duty and circumstance. He became a medic. To all who have experienced ground combat, the title "medic" has special, and even revered, meaning. The medic's role is without question at once the most essential and terrifying on the battlefield. Soldiers are comforted and buoyed simply by knowing a medic is near. Without recourse or release through individual offensive action, the medic must brave the same extreme life threatening dangers of the battlefield as the fighting soldier in order to bring immediate aid to those in need. He must triage his ministrations to ensure optimizing the survival odds for those likely to benefit, while as circumstances allow affording compassion and solace for those who will not. It is the medic's actions that set the odds of survival. This is the tale that Robert Smith weaves. It's not about the Great Captains, or grand military campaigns, it is about the individual and the space/actions surrounding him that define his perceptions and responses to war. He then draws us back to the future on a journey across the same battlegrounds to discover for all the terror, the waste, and the heroism that the land heals.
