An articulate, compelling history of American battlefield medics.
“I have walked the battlefields with Martin King, who has traversed them countless times with veterans. No one knows these stories like Martin, and no one can tell them quite the way he does.”
—Rick Beyer, New York Times bestselling author of The Ghost Army of World War II
“Few things bring history to life like the words of those who lived through it. Martin King offers us a glimpse into those experiences, documenting a young nation in the most formative periods of its history. Insightful, moving, and important, this book is a valuable tool for anyone wanting to better understand America’s role in the most brutal of conflicts.”
—Dan Snow, BBC TV presenter and historian, History Hit TV
“I have never known better stories in my life. Thoughtful and touching beyond belief. The context Martin King provides to help tell the story is beyond reproach. This is 11 on a scale of 10.”
—Commander Jeffrey Barta, Deputy Museum Systems Operations Office, Naval History and Heritage Command, Washington, DC
“Our soldiers and their missions have greatly benefited from the compassion, commitment, and selfless service of all frontline medics. Thank you for all that you’ve done for our nation, its soldiers, and their families.”
—General David H. Petraeus, United States Army (Retired)
“Martin King has a keen eye for the human side of conflict. His attention to the experience of medical personnel and his excellent prose provides interesting additions. It’s a wonderfully unique book that offers the reader a great insight into everything about the frontline medics.”
