A Note From the Publisher
"The unforgettable story of a man grappling with his destiny as an anti-militarist, emergency doctor and composer, who has come late to support the war against barbarism and terrorism, in the process reconnecting with the heroic virtues of his grandfather, a veteran of the Great War."
―Jacques Demongeot, Professor of Medicine, mathematician, researcher.
“An out-of-the-ordinary human adventure, an anti-militarist in the heart of the war machine in Afghanistan.”
―Professor René Frydman, research scientist whose work in infertility led to the first baby born through in vitro fertilization in France, in 1982.
“The blood of poppies: an emergency doctor in the hell of the Afghan war."
―Jean-Pierre Guéno, French author, historian, publisher.
“It's absorbing, staggering, comic and tragic . . . Run fast and buy it, you won't regret it.”
―Chronique santé intégrative
