About this title


A Memoir of Life and Death on the Front Lines in WWII
An American combat surgeon's riveting and eloquent eyewitness account of battle in France and Germany during World War II.

From the Back Cover:

Harrowing, moving, often angry, but frequently funny, Brendan Phibbs's war memoir is a modern classic. Phibbs, a combat surgeon, entered the fighting in November 1944, in the battle for Alsace-Lorraine, and when his unit - Combat Command B, Twelfth Armored Division, Seventh U.S. Army - invaded Germany, it was the lead point of the southern branch of the Allied pincer. By the time they hit Ansbach, his was the Allied unit farthest east on the German Front, and they stayed on the point, fighting constantly, until the end of the war. Phibbs writes of rescuing injured men from the battlefield and of interrogating POWs and collaborators. He exposes the incompetence of the Army bureaucrats and officers whose decisions often resulted in needless deaths. And he unforgettably describes being among the first Americans to enter typhus-ravaged Dachau. Our War for the World is an account of extraordinary events, extraordinarily told. (6 x 9, 352 pages, b&w photos)Brendan Phibbs is Professor of Clinical Medicine, Section of Cardiology, at the University of Arizona Medical Center. He is also Chief of Medicine and Director of Cardiology at Padre Kino Community Hospital in Tucson. He received an L.A. Regional PEN Award for nonfiction for his memoir.
