Richard B. Woodward[Maskalyk's] experience of caring for noncombatants trapped in a civil war, recorded first in a popular blog and now in this moving book, are particular to this time and place. But much of the routine misery he describes is the lot of the rural poor in countries everywhere…his honest doubts about an adventure few of us could handle, much less ask for, is commendable. His reports on the internal workings of Doctors Without Borders, a noble organization that depends more than it wants to admit on the United Nations, add another dimension to his vivid picture of camaraderie in an inferno.
