Notes "An Australian surgeon's extraordinary story of courage and conflict"--Cover.
Summary The year is 1999. The forces of Serbian strongman Slobodan Milosevic have swept into Kosovo leaving a trail of death and heartbreak. Adelaide surgeon Craig Jurisevic offers his skills as a surgeon to the victims of the conflict. Although no stranger to the battlefield, he is appalled at the unparalleled savagery of the Kosovo war. Sickened by scenes of murder and massacre, he sets aside his non-partisan status and joins forces with the Kosovo Liberation Army, operating on the injured at the front and leading night-time missions behind the lines to retrieve injured Kosovar villagers. Struggling to maintain his moral bearings, Jurisevic's journey has become a descent into the heart of darkness. Blood on My Hands tells a story of terrible suffering, of extraordinary heroism, and of the savagery that lies coiled in the human heart.
