In books published in Anglo-Saxon countries soldier-authors make truth claims five times more often than do military authors from the Netherlands and Germany. At the same time, military authors also frequently admit to some form of self-censuring, so truth claims and self-censorship go hand in hand.

Military doctors serving in Afghanistan usually spend their entire tour in the relatively safe confines of the main base. FOB Doc is the story of one Canadian doctor who spent nearly his entire tour in combat. Captain Ray Wiss was stationed at Forward Operating Bases — FOBs — in Khandahar province, the birthplace of the Taliban and the most intense zone combat in Afghanistan. He shares the 'terror and boredom' of the front-line soldier's life in this candid personal diary. One day, he might be participating in combat operations, treating severe and bloody injuries and coping with the deaths of fellow soldiers, both Afghans and NATO allies; another day, he might be writing about the challenges of going to the latrine in sub-zero weather. FOB Doc is heartbreaking and hilarious, often on the same page.

I met Ray Wiss and his beautiful daughters in person on my trip to Galapagos. This man is a real thing. A great father and a gentleman. Somebody you want to have as your best friend. Good guy. All the profits from his books go to charity. We need more people like him on this planet.

This is a great tread for anyone interested in the Canadians in Afghanistan and how proud I am of our military and our contention and loss. A must read. I am a very proud mother of our Canadian military and very proud of my son who is a Canadian soldier. Thank you Dr. WISS.
