Praise the Lord and Pass the Penicillin: Memoir of a Combat Medic in the Pacific in World War II based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
I enjoyed the book, not written like a boring history account, but with caring and detail of what it was like to fight in the Pacific jungles and the challenges that the soldiers faced in that arena. It told the story of part of medical history with the development of penicillin, which made an impression on me as it was more recent than I think most of us think. I liked the letters to and from home and the photos. It is a memoir, a personal story, told in a personal tone. It was easy to read and I liked the personal account of the challenges of being a medic during those times.
Just did not ike it and even did not finish the book. This is rare since I am very interested in the recollections of the veterans. I cannot explain why, but the author got on my nerves and I threw the book away. I should add that I have 156 books on WWII so I have something to compare.
