It is a true story of an English boy who lived through the German Blitz of London and who dreamed of being a doctor but had no money to do it. It outlines a British educational system that could be a model for the USA. It shows experience working through medical schools in London and Ireland. It compares life as a gunner private with his privileged position as an officer in the British Army serving in England and the Far East with escalating promotions to colonel in the United States Army managing a combat support hospital.
It includes the inner struggles of a boy taught to hate the enemy only to discover the shame of it years later. It includes recovery from failure, world exploration, pioneer family practice in the wild areas of Canada, and obstetrics-gynecology professorial roles extending from Okinawa through Hawaii to Florida.
It is a story of the love of mankind and family with pride in assisting a son complete a marathon at ten years and to continue for Harvard acceptance at fifteen years of age. It is the story of a soldier who sees not the glory but the insanity of war.
