Item description for Vietnam, a Surgeon's Odyssey by Ed Krekorian...

A Doctor's diary. A Soldier's saga.

Colonel J.P. Franklin, MC, U.S. Army, a man of honor, courage and commitment, has already passed through the crucible of two wars. Beginning as a teenaged Marine private in the Second World War, he goes on to command a platoon of self-propelled automatic weapons as a lietenant in the Korean War. His greatest challenge, however, comes in a third war, the Vietnam War.

World recognised for his expertise as a head and neck surgeon, he leaves the safe academic environment of Walter Reed Army Medical Centre to become a paratrooper, then takes his military and surgical skills to Vietnam.

Vietnam, A Surgeon's Odyssey is a detailed and often traumatic perspective of a controversial period in United States history by a senior Army Medical Corps Officer. It is a period that strains those ideals and loyalties considered sacred to the young men who matured into warriors during the Second World War and the Korean War.

Reviews - What do customers think about Vietnam, a Surgeon's Odyssey?

IT'S A NOVEL.  Oct 21, 2004
This book is well-written and interesting. It will absorb your attention and it's rarely dull. On the other-hand its style reminds me of the W.E.B.Griffin Action-Hero books. Everything and everyone in the book is "too this" and "too that." The book is autobiographical. Krekorian depicts himself as the best there ever was...Best Surgeon, Best Commander, Best Husband, Best Friend...Best (fill in the blank). Everyone in the book is a Superhero or a Super-villain. There is no grey. I wondered for a moment if Krekorian and W.E.B.Griffin were separated at birth, but discounted the idea when I further reflected that Krekorian probably had the perfect childhood. But it's not a bad book if you like W.E.B.Griffin, and I don't question the author's basic honesty. There likely are mortals like Ed Krekorian out there in the world...somewhere.
