Description

At age thirty-eight, Navy Dr. Richard Jadick was too old to be called up to the front lines-but not too old to volunteer. This is the inspiring story of one man's decision to enter into the fray-and a compelling account of courage under fire. Both wrenching and uplifting, On Call in Hell is a portrayal of brothers-in-arms that few will be able to forget. Awarded a Bronze Star with a Combat V for valor, Jadick has become a modern American legend-and a true American hero.

Author Biography

Cmdr. Richard Jadick is a U.S. Navy surgeon and is the most decorated doctor of the Iraq War, having developed a battlefield medic camp to treat wounded Marines and sailors with lifesaving immediacy. It is believed Jadick's smart thinking saved the lives of at least 30 Marines and sailors wounded during the Second Battle of Fallujah. Currently he is a resident in Urology at the Medical College of Georgia. Thomas Hayden coauthored the national bestselling book On Call in Hell as well as Sex and War. Previously, he was a writer at Newsweek as well as a freelance journalist. His writing has been published in National Geographic, Wired, and Smithsonian Magazine. He teaches environmental writing and journalism at Stanford University's School of Earth Science. Hayden resides in San Francisco with his family.
