Emergency War Surgery is not the be all end all medical reference, and in a catastrophic disaster, if you are on my team and break this out and read it with one hand as you try to pull a bullet out of my leg – prepare to get kicked in the head…
But this book does give information that is hard to find, and in my own opinion, I think it deserves a place in every prepper’s bookshelf.
Just don’t equate owning this book (or any other) with knowing its contents, which is why I said don’t read with one hand and cut with the other.
You should have a firm grasp on the contents of this book pre-disaster if you think there is a possibility that you may one day have to use the contents of this book
I remember once as a kid, I bought a karate book at the school book fair, and went home and challenged my dad to a sparring match. I was so ready – I kept calling time out to open the book to whatever kick I wanted to try. It was silly then, and the idea that you can learn emergency war surgery simply by owning a book is even sillier.
