October 1973: A young physician in Israel prepares to celebrate the Jewish High Holidays with his wife and children. Suddenly a military invasion changes his life forever. This book chronicles the author's transformation from a civilian to a wartime doctor. In vivid personal details, the author Itzhak Brook, a veteran of both the Israeli Defense Forces and the United States Navy, recounts his first experience in war. He describes his own doubt and misgivings of being a physician facing the daily struggle of survival in the Sinai battle zone. Expecting to heal his soldiers’ physical combat wounds, Brook unexpectedly must address his soldiers’ psychological battlefield trauma. In unvarnished details from the mundane to the catastrophic, he describes his perspective of a war that shaped his own life, and his nation's fragile identity.
