This biographical novel is the exciting story of the many forgotten heroic Hospital Corpsmen of the Navy. Chief Edelmann experienced the same nerve-wracking emotions, the same devotional communion with men described in Battle Cry and From Here to Eternity. But this book is more than just another war story. It is a revealing and detailed exploration of the forces that keep fear-ridden men going in the face of constant danger. This book is based on the premise that the true horror of war can never be fully understood except by those who have actually lived through holocaust, and felt the terrors of imminent death upon them. It is an effort to bring the lay reader closer to the point of understanding war than one has ever seen before. The author had permission to use the actual names of some of the heroes of the war.
