No Place To Hide by W. Lee Warren, M.D.

    This is a man’s book.
     My first impression when I was barely half way through the book was that it is gutsy and graphic. It has to be graphic. Dr. Warren is writing about war and it’s devastation.

      Warren being a neurosurgeon writes like a surgeon and doesn’t apologize for it. He wants you to see the damage war has.

      He was part of the medical team that was in Iraq 2004-2005. Details have been toned down somewhat. Battlefield medicine is not pretty.

      Warren writes of the interaction the doctors had with each other as well as the patient. He brings the human side to the war into perspective. Who lived or died depended on the skill and the equipment and the purpose of an ever present God.

       I found this book to be very well written and it kept my attention. Even in the operation details, and the first half of the book covers this area,  Warren was trying to hold his marriage together while dealing with the battle casualties.

      This book shows God’s control over life.

       As I said, this is a man’s book. It shows a strong man who was even able to work around the pressure forced on him by the situation he was thrust into. It changed him. It wasn’t easy, but life isn’t easy.

        Told chronologically it moves forward to the present day
        This book was sent to me free by the group for this review. I was not required to give a positive review. Any viewpoint expressed is that of the reviewer and not those of the publisher I review for BookLook Bloggers
