A Book We Love: Paradise General

Paradise General: Riding the Surge at a Combat Hospital in Iraq by Dr. Dave Hnida

A sobering look at what doctors are seeing, doing and feeling as they care for wounded soldiers. Faced with terribly injured patients, the doctors in Hnida’s 399th Combat Support Hospital use their skills to manage an astonishing 98% srvival rate. To survive this service with their sanity intact, the doctors keep their sense of humor and play pranks on each other – M*A*S*H 4077th style! At times funny, but always heartbreaking and inspiring, this book by Littleton author Dr. Hnida brings the personal result of war to mind for all of us.
