Item description for A DOCTOR'S WAR: Introduction by Pete McCarthy, author of McCarthy's Bar by Aidan MacCarthy...

A jaw-dropping account of life as an RAF doctor during the Second World War.

As an RAF medical officer, Aidan McCarthy served in France, survived Dunkirk, and was plunged into adventures in the Japanese-American arena comparable with those of famous war heroes.

Interned by the Japanese in Java, he helped his fellow prisoners with amazing ingenuity in awful conditions. En-route back to Japan in 1944, his ship was torpedoed but he was rescued by a whaling boat and re-interned in Japan. His life was literally saved by the dropping of the Nagasaki atom bomb. He was then eyewitness to the horror and devastation it caused.

"This is an almost incredible account written with humour and dignity." - Pete McCarthy

"This book is an epic." - Sir Dennis Spotswood, Marshal of the RAF

"His description is terrifying but fascinating." - Air Marshal Sir William Coles

Reviews - What do customers think about A DOCTOR'S WAR: Introduction by Pete McCarthy, author of McCarthy's Bar?

An incredible book  Jun 20, 2006
This short autobiographical account of an Irish doctor's World War II experiences is so riveting that I stayed up way too late to finish it. Dr. MacCarthy served in Europe and was then shipped out to the Asian theatre where he endured the unthinkable. The most striking things I took away from this book is how strong human beings can be in the face of terrible events and how good can triumph within each of us. As the preface said, if you went to a movie and saw all the things portrayed which Dr. McCarthy lived through, you'd think it too far-fetched to be true.
