Dr. James Finnegan spent one year in Vietnam during the war as a combat surgeon, including heading a surgical team in Khe Sanh during the famous 77 day siege of that combat base. During his time there he treated 2500 marine casualties. His stories are personal, unique, and describe a side of the war seldom reported in the media. Each story is based on the true personal experiences of a physician who himself received a Purple Heart for wounds he sustained in action.

Excerpt: …..”I’m laying on the grass outside of a cyclone fence surrounding the fighter jet parking revetments at the Da Nang airfield. Staring me in the face are the afterburners of an F-4 fighter plane that is about to take off on a mission over North Vietnam……..This is my introduction to Vietnam…..”
