The history of medicine is replete with advances made by hard-working maverick doctors who, through intelligence, serendipity, and perseverance, made astonishing progress against humankind’s deadliest diseases.

Yet surgeon and author Andrew Lam says one factor spurred more medical breakthroughs than any other: war. He reveals how D-Day, Luftwaffe bombing raids, top-secret Liberty ship cargo, and aerial dogfights during World War II bequeathed to humanity innovations in surgery, cancer treatment, and trauma care that still serve us today.

Lam’s book on medical history, The Masters of Medicine: Our Greatest Triumphs in the Race to Cure Humanity’s Deadliest Diseases (BenBella Books), is available for purchase.
