Learn and laugh as Professor Murtagh and colleagues recount their war stories from the front line. These tales remind us that sometimes things are not as they seem and it always pays to remain alert to the subtleties of the human condition.After all, in the words of Professor Murtagh, 'To practise medicine is a privilege, to practise it well is a difficult challenge, but not to learn from one's mistakes is unforgivable'.
