About The Book & Author


Combat Surgeon in Vietnam by Dr. Andrew Lovy is a rare gem of first-person, primary-source history of our nationís most controversial war. This book is significant in the history of American Medicine. In all prior conflicts, osteopathic physicians (DOís) were not eligible to be commissioned as officers in the medical corps as were allopathic physicians (MDís). Dr. Lovy represents the first D.O. to receive a commission as a medical officer in the Army. Since then, many osteopathic physicians have enjoyed distinguished careers in the Armed Forces and the U.S. Public Health Service. Combat Surgeon is a special gift to many, but to those involved in the war itself whether they were in support or opposed to it.
