A Novel of the Surgeons of World War II
Anthony A. Goodman
Anthony Goodman paints a compelling and detailed picture of wartime medicine and the surgeons who tended to the solders on the front lines of WWII in his book, "None But the Brave: A Novel of the Surgeons of WWII."
The topic of World War II has provided the backdrop for many fine novels and stories. In "None But the Brave" (ISBN 1463507984), Anthony Goodman takes readers into the lives of the surgeons, medics and nurses who took part in these famous moments in world history.
Using actual diary entries from a WWII surgeon the reader is introduced to a team of surgeons, each with unique personal stories and professional skills aiding and supporting each other while caring for soldiers on the battlefield. Goodman creates a work of fiction also detailing the dangers and perils of the battlefield medic, a job where the life expectancy during the D-Day invasion of Normandy was just 19 minutes.
The story takes the reader from the soldier's homes in the US, across the European front from the June 6, 1944 D-Day landings, to the Malmédy Massacre in Belgium, to the Battle of the Bulge, to the liberation of the concentration camps deep in the heart of Germany. Readers will find themselves immersed in the many battles and field hospitals through the long bloody roads of France and Germany, leading to the final destruction of Hitler's Third Reich.
Goodman credits his personal mentor for his inspiration. "I was given the diaries and photos of my own mentor and personal hero, a surgeon much like those described in the book; a man, like many others, who saw his duty, went to war, and returned when the job was done to reenter his life deeply changed by the experience in a world also totally changed," Goodman says.
Goodman hopes that his work of historical fiction will educate readers about what happened on the frontlines of WWII, especially in the lives of those serving without guns. He believes that readers will walk away with a better understanding of the lives and the sacrifices made by our fellow countrymen and women during World War II, as well as in our current battlefield conflicts.
