Synopsis: Soldiers Saving Soldiers is the story of the 18th Surgical Hospital and the hundreds of doctors, nurses, medics and support personnel who were stationed at Pleiku, South Vietnam during the Vietnam War. In particular, it centers on the experiences of Dr. Jerry W. Martin, who stationed there from June 1966-June 1967.
Part combat hospital and part medical clinic for Vietnamese and Montagnard villagers, the 18th Surgical Hospital served as a vital lifeline and saved the lives of thousands of American servicemen, enemy combatants and local families throughout the Vietnam War. Like their fellow countrymen who fought the war, the men and women of the 18th Surgical Hospital have been forever changed by their experiences in Vietnam, both good and bad.
The book also presents the entire history of the unit, from its origins in 1928 through World War II, and then from reactivation in Vietnam through 1971. In addition, Dr. Martin presents the day-to-day life of a field surgeon with a look at dozens of surgical procedures and their outcomes (with detailed full-color case photographs, plus nearly 500 photographs of people and places throughout Vietnam. Soldiers Saving Soldiers is an excellent book for veterans, their families and military historians, and also presents excellent case studies for medical professionals and modern-day field surgeons.
