Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0850523516, Hardcover)Anecdotal in style, these memoirs do not follow a chronological order. The author is a surgeon who, from the harrowing account of the crossing of the River Rapido in World War II to the story of a man with a poker up his backside, reveals himself to be a man of compassion and a skilful raconteur.

Mr. Downie, who has retired from surgical practice, recalls those moments in his life which he feels might be amusing or instructive.
