Surgeon in the Raw
by David Jackson
A no-punches-pulled account of a top surgeon’s life at the battlefront and on the NHS front line.
As a young surgeon, David Jackson left a promising NHS hospital career to pursue challenge, travel and adventure with the British Army. He soon got plenty of all three. He served on the surgical front line in Northern Ireland, the Falkland Islands and Bosnia and found himself dealing with the worst horrors and tragedies of war, looking after soldiers with appalling, often fatal, injuries and using all the skills at his disposal to save lives and limbs. The fact that he never lost his sense of humour, despite a sometimes harrowing personal life, comes over clearly in this colourful, moving and often very entertaining book.
This memoir, written as it was as events happened, contains strong language, images of violence and surgery, and sexual themes.
