Tell Them Yourself - It's Not Your Day to Die

Tell Them Yourself is the extraordinary account of how a small group of world class trauma experts joined forces with America’s best combat medics to rewrite the rule book in battlefield medicine - and then to sell these revolutionary new concepts to a disbelieving medical world.

Thousands of Americans wounded in combat died in Vietnam - when they could easily have been saved. More deaths than in the Twin Towers on 9/11. More deaths than Pearl Harbor. In 1990, there had been very little progress made in battlefield trauma care since the Civil War. But the revolutionary new concepts embodied in Tactical Combat Casualty Care (TCCC) have changed that landscape dramatically.

Against great odds, TCCC has reduced the incidence of preventable deaths among combat casualties to the lowest level in history and has been credited with saving the lives of thousands of our nation’s wounded Servicemembers in the recent conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan. TCCC is now mandated by the U.S. Department of Defense as the nation’s standard for battlefield trauma care.

TCCC has forever changed the way care will be provided to America’s combat wounded and is now being used by militaries around the world and in civilian prehospital trauma care as well.

This is a medical book like no other because it is a combat medical story like no other.
