A powerful account of 18 months in the lives of three soldiers and a journalist, all patients in Ward 57, Walter Reed's amputee wing. A chronicle of devastation and recovery, this is a deeply affecting portrait of the private aftermath of combat casualties.
From the Publisher:
A TIME magazine correspondent who lost his hand during a bombing in Iraq describes the incident that changed his life and his treatment at Ward 57 at Walter Reed Medical Center, a wing reserved for amputees, where he met Pete Damon, Louis Rodriguez, and Bobby Isaacs, three soldiers and fellow amputees. Reprint. 40,000 first printing.
Annotation:
Time correspondent Michael Weisskopf reports on his experiences in Ward 57 of Walter Reed Army Medical Center, a place known as "Amputee Alley." Weisskopf was there as a patient, having lost his right hand trying to toss away a grenade that had been thrown near him and a group of American soldiers while he was on assignment in Baghdad. In BLOOD BROTHERS, Weisskopf tells his story and the stories of three other soldiers, also on Ward 57. His report includes information about medical and psychological issues relating to rehabilitation, including the science of prosthetics and the realities of having one, as well as the amazing work done by the staff at Walter Reed. Weisskopf is candid about the range of emotions he experienced, his concerns for his family and friends, his anger at himself and frustration with the whole matter, and the difficulties of accepting that his life has changed.
