This book tells of my Dadís life in his early years and the time he spent in the jungles of Burma during the war years. In it he tells how he managed to become a surgeon in a small town in Idaho and how he later got involved in the Second World War as a medical officer and ended up as a machine gunner on a tank during the battle for northern Burma. 

The letters he wrote to my mother could not tell of the war effort as this was cen-sored out. The tales he told of just life in the Army and the difficulties he ran into make up the largest part of this book
