Stanford Bookstore Meet the Author: Henry Ward Trueblood, "A Surgeon's War: My Year in Vietnam"

Join us for a book event with Henry Ward Trueblood, M.D. in regards to his book, "A Surgeon's War: My Year in Vietnam." This event sponsored by the Pegasus Physician Writers at Stanford.
In this starkly told story, the reader becomes part of a team of Navy doctors attached to the Third Marine Division in Da Nang in 1965. It is the story of life in a primitive field hospital, the growth and maturation of a young surgeon in training as he confronts death and massive wounds on a scale never before experienced. There is the discovered thrill of working with an elite team and together saving lives. There is a love story conducted by mail. There is the discarding of old assumptions and building a new philosophy of life, one built on the core principles of medicine; to first do no harm, to give and whenever needed, to strive for excellence.
