Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

D.T. McGuff has crafted a deft account of his struggles as a combat medic in Vietnam from 1969 to 1970. The powerful narration inserts you in the middle of the complexities of the Vietnam War and life in the boonies with the First Air Cavalry Divisions Bravo Company, 2n platoon and later with harrowing Medevac rescue missions. Youll feel as if youre right alongside "Doc" McGuff whether walking the endless, mind numbing jungle trails or falling from one hundred and fifty feet in a bullet riddled Medevac. So That Others May Live chronicles the strangely compelling adventures and personal struggles of a nineteen year old caught up in a battle to save human lives in a world bent on destroying them. This painfully honest account of the mind-blowing roll of a combat medic takes you on a terrifying, confusing and sometimes humorous journey that depicts how one American son evolves from naive nineteen year old to disillusioned combat veteran.
