Publisher's Summary

Doctors, nurses, medics, and stretcher-bearers must venture wherever someone is injured and the cry for assistance goes up. Their job is to put themselves in the heart of danger – to risk their own lives as they try to save the dying.
War at its rawest is their domain, an ugly place of shattered bodies, severed limbs and death. They fulfil society’s vital pledge to its warriors that they will not be abandoned on the battlefield. Yet, more often than not, what they do goes unnoticed – except by those who survive because of their extraordinary courage and skill. This is the story of those brave men and women who go to war armed with bandages not bombs, and put saving life above taking life.

Great Read!

What did you love best about Medic?

This book was never boring. The first hand statements and stories woven into a wealth of information was so well done. The performance was fabulous. I'll listen to this one again.

Good for historians and medics alike

I enjoy military history and in that regard this book is excellent.
I'm also interested in medicine, especially pre-hospital care, and again this book excels.
If you're interested in the history of military medicine this book is going to be right up your alley!

I had a hard time getting out of my car because I just wanted to keep listening!
