Synopsis:

In 1999, scenes of Milosevic's 'ethnic cleansing' play out on television screens all over the world; haunted figures huddled behind barbed wire fences, bodies heaped in ditches. Leaving his wife and son in Adelaide, Craig Jurisevic flies to the Balkans under the auspices of the International Medical Corps. His determination to put his skills to the best possible use leads him closer and closer to the frontline, and deeper into danger.

Blood on My Hands, co-written with award-winning author Robert Hillman, tells a story of terrible suffering, of extraordinary heroism, and of the savagery that lies coiled in the human heart.

About the Author: Craig Jurisevic was born in Adelaide, South Australia in 1965 and is married with three children. He is a cardiothoracic and trauma surgeon and has worked in many conflict zones. These include Israel and Gaza (1992-93), Albania and Kosovo in (1999), and with the Australian Army in East Timor (2006) and Afghanistan (2008). He is a member of the International Humanitarian Law Committee of the Australian Red Cross.

Book Description Softcover. Condition: Near Fine. The year is 1999, and for the first time since World War II, Europe is witnessing scenes of mass murder. The forces of Serbian strongman Slobodan Milosevic have swept into Kosovo on the Balkan Peninsula leaving a trail of death and heartbreak. Scenes of Milosevic‚ s ‚ ethnic cleansing‚ play out on television screens all over the world; haunted figures huddled behind barbed wire fences, bodies heaped in ditches. Adelaide surgeon, Craig Jurisevic, recalls his grandfather‚ s ordeal in a Nazi concentration camp and resolves to honour his memory by offering his skills as a surgeon to the victims of the conflict. Leaving his wife and son in Adelaide, Jurisevic flies to the Balkans under the auspices of the International Medical Corps. Although no stranger to the battlefield, he is appalled at the unparalleled savagery of the Kosovo war. Jurisevic‚ s determination to put his skills to the best possible use leads him closer and closer to the front line, and deeper into danger. Sickened by scenes of murder and massacre, he sets aside his non-partisan status and joins forces with the Kosovo Liberation Army, operating on the injured at the front and leading night-time missions behind the lines to retrieve injured Kosovar villagers. Struggling to maintain his moral bearings, Jurisevic‚ s journey from Adelaide to the hell of Kosovo has become a descent into the heart of darkness. Blood on My Hands, co-written with award-winning author Robert Hillman, tells a story of terrible suffering, of extraordinary heroism, and of the savagery that lies coiled in the human heart. It is an incredibly powerful and moving account from a remarkable Australian and one that will stay with you long after you have put the book back on the shelfFirst Edition. 328 p., [8] p. of plates : col. ill., col. ports., maps ; 24 cm.¬ #0921 Biography & Autobiography¬-Jurisevic, Craig, 1965-¬¬|¬¬International Medical Corps.¬¬|¬¬Surgeons -- Australia -- Biography.¬¬|¬¬Surgeons -- Kosovo (Republic) -- Biography.¬¬|¬¬Volunteer workers in medical care -- Kosovo (Republic) -- Biography.¬¬|¬¬Kosovo War, 1998-1999 -- Medical care.¬¬|¬¬Kosovo War, 1998-1999 -- Personal narratives, Australian.
