This is an excellent choice :). I really liked this book and I found the subject matter fascinating.

And FYI, there are some graphic descriptions in the beginning of the book, but later on those descriptions are toned down considerably.

I remember you telling me about the graphic descriptions. It's ok. I've had a proper preparation for going into this book. Also, the descriptions are probably not as gratuitous as in other books.

I didn´t mind the graphic descriptions, because that´s how operations have been back in the day. I would have been far more puzzled (and annoyed) if Fitzharris would have tried to sugarcoat the whole thing.

Yeah, I can deal with that. It's gratuitous or misplaced descriptions that I'm not great with. There is a time and place, and using the descriptions only for effect is what I can't stand. It makes a lot of sense in this book as this is the subject matter.
This sounds like a fascinating read. I'll check it out and wait for your review as well.
