Harvard Medical School department head and practitioner John Parrish has had a fulfilling career, but there was always one troubling specter looming in the background: his Vietnam tours as a Marine battlefield physician. The grim afterimages of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder punctuated his life with flashbacks and self-destructive thoughts. His Autopsy of War unfolds these horrors with meticulous clarity and then describes how he found first solace and then cure in some unanticipated places. After a bracing descent, an ultimately uplifting personal story for crossover readers.
