really liked it
Read in August, 2010

Title says it all, really. He writes about his two tours there, doing general surgery on injured troops and pediatric surgery on whatever kids happen to come in to the hospital - some injured by the war, some with problems that the Iraqi parents want the American doctors to treat.

This was not easy to read -- he goes into a fair amount of detail, both medical and personal -- but I stayed up late to finish it, and it was worth it. Good inside look at the war.
