Excellent film
9 March 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film is one of the best documentaries that I have ever seen. Sanders does a great job at capturing the essence of what war is like for the doctors, nurses, soldiers, and military families. The film is intelligently done because it provides an apolitical view of the war. There is no agenda; this is the reality of war. He also provides the viewer with proof of why the military medical school, USU, is needed. I would recommend this film to anyone. If one wants to know what military medicine is about, see this film. There is a great amount of history in it as well. One can learn about how the Civil War advanced medicine through techniques like amputations (yes, this was an advance at the time believe it or not).
