Summary
  • As long as humans have lived together on the planet there have been wars, andinjured soldiers and civilians. But today, as we engage in wars across the globe with increasingly sophisticated technology, we are able to bring people back from ever closer encounters with death. But how do we do it, and what happens next? Mixing vivid and compelling stories of unexpected survival with astonishing insights into the frontline of medicine, this book is about how far we have come in saving, healing and restoring the human body. But what are the costs involved in this hardest of journeys back from the brink?
