Blood on my Hands: a surgeon at war Kindle Edition
'This is an extremely well written book, but not one that is just to be enjoyed - it is brutal and honest; shocking but authentic. There is no other like it.'
- David A K Watters, Professor of Surgery, University of Melbourne--This text refers to the paperback edition.

The true heros in this book are the victims of the ethnic cleansing...the survivors and the deceased. As a father I felt heartfelt sorrow for the families especially the children. After reading Craig's account of a war that happened on our doorstep I was extremely grateful for the life that I had with my family but I had to ask myself "What have I done today to better this world?"
Cheers Craig for making me ask myself this question. A sincere thanks.
There are some amazing optimistic moments, and moments of astounding viciousness; especially the idiosyncratic atrocities of the JNA, or whatever they were by then. Gangsters running the Kukes hospital (Albania), cynical doctors basically torturing patients (including children)...
And then there's the moments that seem to provoke most of the ethical discussion, which compared to the cynical violence in here came as a relief to me. Like a very dark new-year's eve fireworks show... Hard to believe this story is less well known.
The contrast between Adelaide (I think of the complaints we have over hospitals here) and Kukes in '99 is black and white.
Glad Dr. Jurisevic told his story.
