Retired Board Certified podiatric (foot & ankle) surgeon. This is the author's second book. The first book was written about his father who commanded a MASH hospital in WWII which liberated a concentration camp in Austria. This camp was ordered built by Hitler for an American hero, Nazi SS Officer Wernher von Braun, so that von Braun could build missiles to attach England and eventually the USA.

The Whooping Cough Germ that Became a Hero

Authored by Dr. Richard G. Macdonald

This book is based on a true story. In 1933, a medical article was written in the Journal of Infectious Diseases by the author's parents, Hugh Macdonald MD and Edith Jersild Macdonald RN.

The article explained the testing of the whooping cough vaccine on the author's four brothers. This book shows the importance of children getting vaccinated for childhood disease.
