Item Type: Book Section


Sudden death is an inevitable feature of modern-day conflict, and military personnel deal with the death of both civilians and army personnel whilst on tour. The extreme circumstances and conditions involved make sudden death much harder to cope with, especially when one’s own life or that of a colleague is threatened. The following chapter documents the narratives of two military medical personnel who coped admirably with sudden death scenarios whilst on tour in the austere environment of Afghanistan showing courage and fortitude in the face of danger.
