This book touched me because I knew some of the men that were in Roberts' book. His book was a great reminder of what these medics had to endure. His book talks about the hardship that these men were faced with during each battle. One important observation that needs to be remembered is that our Medics were our close friends and in the field and in big battles it was hard for them to figure out who to start patching up and what to say to a young friend that they know will not make it. A horrible emotional job and then you were also be shot at. Thank God for medics.
Another good book about what Medics do is:

"Combat Medic Vietnam" is a solid military story. Its 33 chapters are devoted to some 10 Army and Marine medics who served in Vietnam. While "CM" pulls no punches, neither does it belabor or drag the episodes out. Each episode, told in the first person "tells it like it was" and moves on. The result is a highly compact and readable tale with no gratuitous gore and suffering. To the credit of the men involved, there is also no trace of self-pity though the Lord knows they were well entitled on that score. The Afterward reveals what became of the 10 when they returned to "The World"- more power to them all! I enjoyed the Appendix, which encompasses a brief world history of military medics both U.S. and foreign. "CM" has 2 minor flaws common to military books: There are no maps and no glossary of Army/Marine/Navy acronyms or jargon. Their inclusion would have helped. Their exclusion does not detract from the larger story. "CM" represents yet another view, another observation post into the Vietnam War. Both "Combat Medic" and author Roberts earlier work, "One Shot-One Kill" are highly and earnestly recommended.

Great stories of a sad time in our military history, when politicians decided to fight a war without
declaration, using American soldiers' lives. And the Combat medics and Corpsmen who risks their
lives in an attempt to save lives.
I read this book when I was in graduate school. It's very interesting. The only problem is that it was too short. I was captivated and could not put the book down. So I finished reading it very quickly. The stories are powerful and give credit to the medics. I know that Duke started a physician assistant program to put the knowledge of combat medics to use in civilian clinics after the war. Today, there are many such PA programs. The US Military's medic program was ahead of its time during the Vietnam War. The only incompletion I could see is the lack of reference to Agent Orange and its health effects on returning veterans. I studied Agent Orange for public health. I made a molecular model of the chemical dioxin, TCDD, found in Agent Orange. I passed it out during a class presentation for graduate students in public health. The class was shocked. Most of them were born in the 1980s and were unaware of Agent Orange. Back to the book, the medics of Vietnam had a huge responsiblity to save the lives of soldiers. The written work by Craig Roberts tells their story very well.
