Wounded: Vietnam to Iraq Reviews
This review is based on three criteria: information provided, value and readability.
After rereading the book
great read. I very much enjoyed the stories that Dr Glasses shared.
As always Glassser brings a thoughtful, well reasoned perspective to the costs of war in medical terms. We forget the lingering costs both financial and emotional that follow wars by decades. Not an anti-war piece but certainly one that would make a thinking person lean that way
I got a copy of Glasser's Vietnam book "365 Days" when it first was published. It was a real good description of the mindset of the troops in those days. I find his analysis of the changes in Military medical thinking rather interesting in this "Vietnam to Iraq" transition. It gives the reader a lot to think about , in terms of the concept of 'No Man Left Behind' and some other 'Save your Buddy' themes. Glasser has done his homework. I found his writing to be provoking me to rethink much of my attitude regarding post-op treatment and V A programs.
This is a must read book for,any military medical person, anyone interested in military medicine and Dr Glasser's insights on both wars are enlightening. I heard the echo of my own words explaining casualties in Iraq when I read his words. I did 3 tours as an Army Physician Assistant in Iraq and a tour during Desert Storm as a 91C in a MASH unit. It is a short read but chock full of great ideas, in site and reasonings for casualty care in both Viet Nam and Iraq. This is a don't miss gotta have book!
Every American should read this little book. Dr. Glasser describes the physical and mental conditions that will stay with the veterans of Iraq/Afghanistan for the rest of their lives.
I forgot what Glasser said. Did he say we Americans can't afford the destruction to the human body that is currently going on in Iraq? Say it again Ronald.
