Opis: Medic How I Fought World War II with Morphine, Sulfa and Iod - Robert J. Franklin, Franklin

Lt. Gen. George S. Patton remarked that the '45th Infantry Division is one of the best, if not the best division that the American army has ever produced'. Such praise came at a steep price, for the 45th saw some of the fiercest fighting in the European campaign - from Sicily to Anzio and from southern France into Germany - and racked up one of the highest casualty rates. Through it all, medic Robert 'Doc Joe' Franklin - drafted in 1942 and thrust into combat with no specific training or knowledge for treating war wounds - soldiered on, fighting as hard to keep his men alive as the enemy fought to kill them. His medical story, one of the first of World War II, is told here with stark simplicity, unflinching honesty, and unfailing grit. Studded with memorable vignettes - of a friend who 'smells' the Germans long before they appear, the dog that acts as an artillery spotter, the lieutenant who can't see beyond a few hundred feet - Franklin's memoir documents the almost unbearable drama of ground gained and lives lost as well as the terrible human toll of battle on himself, his comrades, and civilians quite literally caught in the crossfire. A rare look at the fight for lives laid on the line at every turn, "Medic!" brings to life as never before the reality of war. Robert 'Doc Joe' Franklin served as a medic with the 157th Infantry Regiment of the 45th Division during the invasion of Europe in World War II. He lives in California. Flint Whitlock, author of "The Rock of Anzio: From Sicily to Dachau, A History of the 45th Infantry Division", is a former army officer and Vietnam veteran. "Seeing the war through the eyes of a medic, feeling the frustrations, the fear, the helplessness, and the triumphs first-hand, the reader understands what it means to fight to save the lives of soldiers. . . . A valuable addition to any biographical or historical collection."--Sara Marcus, "Association of Jewish Libraries Newsletter"--Sara Marcus"AJL Newsletter" (11/13/2006)1.
