- Riding the Surge at a Combat Hospital in Iraq
- By: David Hnida M.D.
- Narrated by: George K. Wilson
- Length: 9 hrs and 56 mins
A family doctor with limited surgical experience, Dr. Dave Hnida volunteered for two tours of duty in Iraq - first as a battalion surgeon with a combat unit and then as trauma chief at the busiest Combat Support Hospital (CSH) during the Surge. Like a modern-day M*A*S*H, Dr. Hnida and his team conducted surgery under terrible conditions in a series of tents connected to the occasional run-down building.
Fans of M*A*S*H will enjoy this book!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Yes. It is well written and very well narrated by George WIlson. Liked the different voices and accents he put into the characters.
What did you like best about this story?
The honesty of the writer. The descriptions make you feel like you are there watching the story unfold.
Was there a moment in the book that particular moved you?
I think his fear at the beginning, wondering what he got himself into. I could so identify with that. It was encouraging to know others are afraid too, but they overcome their fears and succeed at the monumental task in front of them.
