Riassunto: It?s 1965. A young surgeon is drafted into the U.S. Navy and sent to Vietnam, where he finds himself closer than he ever imagined to the carnage of war. He performs operations while under fire and sees wounds that can barely be contemplated. Marines are dying on the operating table in front of him. The small-town moral certainties he grew up believing in may themselves succumb to the ravages he is witnessing. More than anything, he wants to make it home to marry the woman he loves.
L'autore: Henry Ward Trueblood M.D. grew up in Indianola, Iowa, where his father was the town doctor. By the age of ten he was regularly making house calls with his father. Trueblood graduated from Stanford Medical School in 1964 and served in the U.S. Navy as a surgeon in Vietnam in 1965-66. An award-winning faculty member at Stanford, he continues to teach third-year medical students and serve as Trauma Attending at Santa Clara Valley Medical Center, a Level One Trauma Center. Trueblood?s wife Nancy is in private practice as a psychotherapist. They have two children and five grandchildren.
