Book Bingo - Round 8: Set in a Time of War

 War Doctor: surgery on the front line by David Nott

 This week I have chosen the category 'Set in a Time of War'

The book I have chosen for this category is: The War Doctor.

Normally when I think of a book set during a war I immediately turn to books on WWI or WWII however I thought outside my usual genre and picked a non-fiction / biography. David Nott has written a compassionate story of his years as a volunteer surgeon working in hospitals around the world in war torn areas in Afghanistan, Sarajevo, Sierra Leone, Liberia, Sudan, Darfur, Yemen and Gaza. Operating in poorly equipped hospitals with the most basic of instruments.

Book Bingo is a reading challenge hosted by Theresa Smith Writes , Mrs B’s Book Reviews and The Book Muse. The second Saturday of each month book bingo participants reveal which bingo category they have read and what book they chose.  



  1. This is a good one for this category and you've done what I hoped here when not specifying the genre and type - made the square work with flexibility!
