A truly inspiring tale about the history of the Guinea Pig Club.

Plastic surgery was in its infancy before the Second World War -- the most rudimentary techniques were known only to a few surgeons worldwide. The Allies were tremendously fortunate in having the maverick surgeon Archibald McIndoe operating at a small hospital in East Grinstead in the south of England. After arguing with his superiors, McIndoe set up a revolutionary new treatment regime and rightly secured his group of patients, dubbed the Guinea Pig Club, and honoured place in society. Based on extensive research into official records and moving first-person recollections, this extraordinary book brings home the heroism and triumphs of this courageous band of men and contains updated material on how their example is inspiring today's wounded veterans.

The Guinea Pig Club was a group of airmen seriously burned in airplane fires, who braved the experimental procedures that laid the groundwork for reconstructive surgery.
