Summary
"Recent years have offered no more human story than Dr. Seagrave's Burma Surgeon, the account of his medical mission in the jungle wilds and his experiences in the battle of Burma. Now in this new book, he tells what happened to himself and his hospital unit after the retreat with Stilwell. Safe at last in India, survivors of an epic struggle, bereft of home and family, the doctor and his nurses felt that it was the end of all their hard work and dreams; but they had only one thought---to help drive the Japs out of Burma, and some day to see again their home in Namkham. ... Throughout his experience Dr. Seagrave writes of the medical problems and achievements of his unit in his own entertaining and heartfelt style, and as the unit shares in the liberation of Burma he discusses the future of medicine and missions, sanely, humorously and with a strong love for Burma and its people."--Dust jacket flap
