Length: 324 pages5 hours


Recent years have offered no more human story than Dr. Seagrave’s Burma Surgeon, the account of his medical mission in the jungle wilds and his experiences in the battle of Burma.

Now in this new book, he tells what happened to himself and his hospital unit after the retreat with Stilwell. Safe at last in India, survivors of an epic struggle, bereft of home and family, the doctor and his nurses felt that it was the end of all their hard work and dreams; but they had only one thought—to help drive the Japs out of Burma, and some day to see again their home in Namkham.
