Harold Elk Straubing is a writer, editor, and social historian. He has held editorial positions in newspaper, magazine, and book publishing, and has written several books on the Civil War and World War I. Straubing has enjoyed careers in film, radio, animation, and print.From Library Journal:
Another eyewitness account from Straubing, noted for his highly regarded compilations of eyewitness narratives of the Civil War and World War I, this effort focuses on the thoughts and recollections of army physicians and nurses during the Civil War. The accounts range from the numbing surgical notes of a doctor to the forthright concerns of a dedicated nurse and even include some lyric lines from Walt Whitman. However, all accounts have been chosen with care to provide the reader with insight concerning the agony of the sick and wounded and the despair of those attempting to preserve lives under shockingly primitive conditions. Appropriate for general readers and a suitable choice for public and academic libraries.
