About the Book

In this book, nine U.S. Army combat medics share their experiences during the Vietnam War, in their own words. Their accounts relate why they joined the Army during wartime and why they became medics, alongside minute-by-minute, gut-wrenching recollections of caring for the wounded and dead under fire. They also reflect the long-term effects that the war had on the medics and their families.
