About the Author

Robert "Doc Joe" Franklin (1917-2006) served as a medic with the 157th Infantry Regiment of the 45th Division during the invasion of Europe in World War II. Flint Whitlock, author of The Rock of Anzio: From Sicily to Dachau, A History of the 45th Infantry Division, is a former army officer and Vietnam veteran.


"[T]his account of Franklin's experiences during WWII brings combat to life. . . . His descriptions of horrific casualties and deaths of both Americans and Germans are vivid, and so are the more human moments."-Publishers Weekly * Publishers Weekly *
"The spare and terse prose is vividly evocative . . . I have never read a better description of the mission and the work of a platoon medic in combat."-Robert J. T. Joy, Journal of Military History -- Robert J. T. Joy * Journal of Military History *
"[Medic!] will undoubtedly rank with the classics of military literature as one of the finest, most heart-breaking, most brutally honest books ever written about men in war. . . . An absolute `must-read.'"-WWII History * WWII History *
"[Franklin's] vignettes will help the reader understand what being in war is all about-the laughs, the pain, the sorrow, and most important, the pride of having served."-Military Heritage * Military Heritage *
