Praise For…


“Surgeons in training and those looking for a fly-on-the-wall perspective of nontraditional treatment centers in violence-stricken areas will find themselves fully engaged in Nott’s firsthand accounts.”

— Library Journal

"A series of gripping and fascinating medical stories."

— Kirkus

". . . remarkable memoir. . . Nott relates his extensive knowledge of trauma surgery and medicine to the events he writes about in a fluid prose style that is readily understandable to readers outside the health-care profession. The result is a remarkably powerful personal and expert account of the drastic toll war exacts on human beings and a stirring bringing-to-light of the many ways people behind the scenes help mitigate the damage."
