A Country Doctor Goes to War
Author: Tamara Thayer
A Country Doctor Goes to War was the winner of 10 book awards. A chance discovery of pictures, letters, artifacts, and a war journal among her grandfather’s personal belongings spurred Tamara Thayer to document the life story of Dr. Ellsworth “Mike” Thayer in A Country Doctor Goes to War. This is much more than the biography of a doctor who served on the island of Tinian during WWII; it paints a vivid picture of facing the highs and lows of life with integrity.
