For anyone who has been on a MEDCAP a must read. A very good historical review of the experience and processes. For those who have never been on an international medical mission, I strongly recommend this book as it illustrates the power of medicine in the peace process.

The book 'Military medicine to win heart and minds. Aid to civilians in the Vietnam War' by Robert J. Wilensky, is due to the many military abbreviations - such as MEDCAP, MILPHAP, TAOR, AGHD, CAP or TAOR - not always easy to read. But author makes perfectly clear that the medical aid given by US-troops to the Vietnamse population was an important part of the carrot and stick-strategy of the US and the South-Vietnamse government. It tried to overcome the North-Vietnamese troops and Vietcong not only by force but also by trying to win the hearts and minds of the Vietnamese population. The medical aid given had (at least also) a political-military goal in stead of a purely humanitarian one. Wilensky - himself one of the participating doctors - is rather pessimistic about the outcome. Probably the US-troops themselves made some friends, but overall the US-aid only made clear to the Vietnamese people that the South-Vietnamese government could not itself take care of them.
