It would sure be a gruesome job, being a war doctor! In the segment of this book we read, I thought he talked too much about his childhood and we didn't learn much about the war. it would be interesting to read his book though, Because he is Chechen but also has Russian friends and schooling ties. I certainly don't want to be a doctor, but I can only imagine how awful it would be to be a war doctor. At the same time though you are saving peoples lives and fighting for your cause. plus someone's got to do it!
