War Doctor by David Nott

For more than twenty-five years, David Nott has taken unpaid leave from his job as a general and vascular surgeon with the NHS to volunteer in some of the world’s most dangerous war zones.  From Sarajevo under siege in 1993, to clandestine hospitals in rebel-held eastern Aleppo, he has carried out life-saving operations and field surgery in the most challenging conditions, and with none of the resources of a major London teaching hospital.

The conflicts he has worked in form a chronology of twenty-first-century combat: Afghanistan, Sierra Leone, Liberia, Darfur, Congo, Iraq, Yemen, Libya, Gaza and Syria.  But he has also volunteered in areas blighted by natural disasters, such as the earthquakes in Haiti and Nepal.

Driven both by compassion and passion, the desire to help others and the thrill of extreme personal danger, he is now widely acknowledged to be the most experienced trauma surgeon in the world.  But as time went on, David Nott began to realize that flying into a catastrophe – whether war or natural disaster – was not enough.  Doctors on the ground needed to learn how to treat the appalling injuries that war inflicts upon its victims.  Since 2015, the foundation he set up with his wife, Elly, has disseminated the knowledge he has gained, training other doctors in the art of saving lives threatened by bombs and bullets.

War Doctor is his extraordinary story.

Peer & Press Reviews

David Nott is brave, compassionate and inspiring – War Doctor is all of those things and more: a wonderful book that has left me in floods of tears.  He needs a knighthood and his book needs to be in every house.

Adam Kay, author of This Is Going to Hurt

So powerful and honest.  Extraordinary.

Elizabeth Buchan author of The New Mrs Clifton

Incredible non-fiction filled with so much humanity.  You will never forget these stories.

Joanna Cannon, author of Three Things About Elsie
