Summary
On the outside, John Parrish is a highly successful doctor, having risen to the top of his field as department head at Harvard Medical School and Massachusetts General Hospital. Inside, however, he was so tortured by the memories of his tour of duty as a marine battlefield doctor in Vietnam that he was unable to live a normal life. In Autopsy of War, the author delivers an unflinching narrative chronicling his four-decade battle with the unseen enemy in his own mind as he struggled with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
Summary
An account of a navy physician's service in Vietnam and his forty-year struggle with PTSD describes how he endured mental devastation, flashbacks, and near homelessness after leaving his family and visiting veterans' shelters
