In a simple but penetrating way, one gets just a little peak into the life of the medical folk that are in the Middle East. Dr. Baker's style of writing allows you to almost feel like you are looking over his shoulder as he cares for the patients. The frantic life of an ER is twice or three times as rugged over there from one minute to the next. He lets you sense that frustration, nerves and just plain hard work. He also shows you that in order to cope with the tension and pressure of the situation they sometimes do silly things to keep their sense of humor. It is surprising that they can keep their sense of humanity and compassion with bombs falling, planes coming in, terrorists on the doorstep and our wonderful soldiers paying the ultimate price. Hats off and a big salute to these wonderful people!!!!!!

It is incredible that volunteer doctors, surgeons, med techs, anesthesiologists and nurses have given their all to put our service men and women back together. The injuries are horrific, emotions run high and the conditions that they work under are deplorable. I have the utmost respect for these wonderful people who have left their jobs and family to put themselves in harm's way to save our military.

I have read several books on Iraq er 's. This one is the most detailed of all. The author takes you through 15 months of his deployment and leaves nothing to the imagination. If you are at all squeamish, don't read it . If you want to know what it is truly like to work in a war zone, and you want to know the level of sacrifice our military personnel make every day you will learn it here.

I have read a lot of books about war and this one is a great read to get an idea what it's like to be in the emergency room in a country at war. Lots of stories of life and death. Talk about a stressful job....

I found it difficult to put this book down. Dr. Baker gave enough information about the care of the patients without being extremely gory and let me see into the life of an ER doctor in Iraq. Loved it!

Dr. Baker did an exceptional job detailing his tour of duty in the Combat Surgical Hospital, nicknamed the Bagdad ER, including all the horrific injuries treated there. He wrote quite eloquently telling the stories of the dedicated men and women serving and saving lives there with great compassion. It was an amazing look into the day to day operations.

As a combat medic, I think this is a well written look into what happens down range every day. Major Todd Baker did an outstanding job with this book. I would recommend it to anyone for sure.
