No Place to Hide

Lee Warren shares his experience as a Air Force neurosurgeon deployed to Iraq in 2005.  He is honest about what he saw and felt; and he is forever changed for it.

While we think of only the soldiers that required treatment, Warren also shares stories of locals who received medical help from our military.  Even more interesting are the stories of medical treatment for our enemies.  The hospital at Ballad treated everyone who came in on a stretcher.  It did not matter who they were or what they did.  The doctors, nurses, and support staff maintained their professionalism as they treated all the injured.

I enjoyed reading this book.  There were moments of comedy as well as tragedy, but Warren never tries to pull at the reader's heartstrings.  Instead, he does a great job sharing what he experienced as he heals from his own wounds of emotional and mental trauma.

Zondervan provided me a free copy of this book in exchange for this review which I freely give.
