Summary

"From the author of the bestselling The Patient and Making the Cut comes the compelling story of two doctors on the front line. When old friends Jack and Tom volunteer for the army medical corps, both men are unaware that their lives are about to change forever. Jack is a first-class vascular surgeon with a strong sense of duty to his country, and Tom a highly respected anaesthetist with a young child. Given 48 hours to deploy, they leave behind their comfortable lives - and the petty rivalries and mindless bureaucracy of the Victoria Hospital - for a war zone where their emotional and psychological strength will be tested to the limit. Who can they trust when even young children are potential suicide bombers, and insurgents could be within their very ranks? Will they both return? And if so, will they be able to take up their lives where they left off? Honour, Duty, Courage is the culmination of Mohamed Khadra's countless interviews with doctors and nurses who have served in the Australian military. Their stories have been dramatised and identifying characteristics altered to maintain confidentiality, but their duty, their compassion and their honour have been preserved. The result is a story that will keep you on the edge of your seat, and leave you in awe of the heroism of our medical corps" -- Website.
