What goes on inside the mind of a trauma specialist as he fights to save his patients’ lives?

Marc Dauphin was a civilian ER doctor and had been a reservist for twenty-seven years when he was recalled to serve in uniform again. His first posting was in Germany, where he helped to stabilize wounded Canadian soldiers before sending them home. The next year he was in Afghanistan, serving as what would be the last Canadian Officer Commanding at the NATO-run Kandahar Role 3 Multinational Hospital.
