Product description

Review

This is a fascinating account of an RAF medical officer's adventures and struggles during the Second World War. The explanation of how the dropping of the Nagazaki atom bomb literally saved his life is remarkable and is all told with both humour and dignity. --The Irish Post, July 5 2008

About the Author

Aidan McCarthy qualified as a doctor at Cork University in 1938. He joined the RAF in 1939, and in 1941 was awarded the George medal for rescuing a pilot from a blazing plane. After the war he was awarded the OBE for his prisoner-of-war work. He continued to serve in the medical branch of the RAF and in 1969 was appointed to command the RAF central medical establishment in London. He retired in 1972. Married in 1948 he had two daughters, one of whom now runs McCarthy's Bar in Castletownbere. He died in 1995.
