Publisher Description

At age thirty-eight, Navy Dr. Richard Jadick was too old to be called up to the front lines-but not too old to volunteer. This is the inspiring story of one man's decision to enter into the fray-and a compelling account of courage under fire. Both wrenching and uplifting, On Call in Hell is a portrayal of brothers-in-arms that few will be able to forget. Awarded a Bronze Star with a Combat V for valor, Jadick has become a modern American legend-and a true American hero.

on call in hell

Just tell the story already! So much detail and color the reader gets lost in the blah blah blah. I served in the US Army and completed Medical School in 2004 but could not get past chapter 3. Thanks putting the country first and keeping the GIs going but after three chapters your legacy, taking fire, putting yourself in harms way and being a point man I just could not take it any more. Glad I got the book for free or I really would have been upset. Don't purchase it.

A Must Read

Provides unique insight on modern warfare from a physician-solider's perspective.

Exceptional!

The book does great job first of telling a compelling tale. In addition to that is the insight into the military medical organizations, the challenges of battlefield medicine, and individuals who make it function. It also provides a clear and unique view of the battle for Fallujah. Finally, it does all this with a great deal of respect for those marines that become patients. I have been recommending this book to all my medical school classmates that ask me about military service. Excellent book!
