Editorial Reviews

Review

- So powerful and honest. Extraordinary. Elizabeth Buchan, author of The New Mrs Clifton and I Can't Begin to Tell You

- One of the most brutally vivid evocations of modern warfare that you will read . . . superb, unforgettable, simply written and painfully clear . . . You are constantly amazed that men such as Nott can witness the extraordinary cruelties of the human race, so many and so foul, yet keep going. Be warned: this is a powerful but often traumatic read. Sunday Times

A triumph: a love letter to surgery, and to helping others in extremis. Reading it is much like being taken apart and put together again in a fascinating way. It reveals a fascinating man whose life is a lesson in what good you can do with privilege . . . I spent the entire time wishing that David Nott would become our prime minister . . . This book is neither tidy, nor easy, yet it is so important. War Doctor is a reminder that we are all in this together, and that ordinary people can do extraordinary things. -  Christie Watson, Daily Telegraph

- Riveting . . . Nott is no ordinary doctor, as this dramatic telling of his extraordinary life makes clear. Ian Birrell, The Times

- As a surgeon myself, I can only look on what he has achieved with complete awe, overwhelmed by his heroism and compassion as much as by the world's cruelty. Henry March, author of Do No Harm, New Statesman

- His stories of courage and compassion in the face of seemingly certain death are breathtaking . . . If a film about his life isn't already in development, someone's missing a trick. Fiona Sturges, The Guardian

- A devastating account of two decades volunteering his services to some of the world's most dangerous places. Helen Brown, Daily Mail

- A stand out memoir by a vascular surgeon in the NHS who volunteered for more than twenty years in war zones. Daily Record

- Extraordinary. - Independent
