Book Synopsis

When Lieutenant Commander Heidi Kraft's twin son and daughter were fifteen months old, she was deployed to . A clinical psychologist in the US Navy, Kraft's job was to uncover the wounds of war that a surgeon would never see. She put away thoughts of her children back home, acclimated to the sound of incoming rockets, and learned how to listen to the most traumatic stories a war zone has to offer.
One of the toughest lessons of her deployment was perfectly articulated by the TV show M*A*S*H: "There are two rules of war. Rule number one is that young men die. Rule number two is that doctors can't change rule number one." Some Marines, Kraft realized, and even some of their doctors, would be damaged by war in ways she could not repair. And sometimes, people were repaired in ways she never expected. RULE NUMBER TWO is a powerful firsthand account of providing comfort admidst the chaos of war, and of what it takes to endure.

  • Could not put this book down

    By GWTrombley
    This book is excellent. While it was therapy for Dr. Kraft, it was a wake up call for all of us that war has an effect on all and it doesn't end when the troops come home. The sacrifices made by the men and women of the U.S. Military are too numerous to count. The number if actually counted would dwarf the number that makes up the national debt. The pride and patriotism they have for our nation is captured here in this book.

    By Tims Tunes!!
    A well written account of deployment time in Iraq. A very touching story by a female officer in the Navy medical corps. It puts into perspective the difficulties of being a woman, mother, and psychologist overseas.
  • Somewhat disappointing

    By Bbuck5717
    I bought the book thinking it was a historical account of the Indianapolis and what these men went through, however, the writer spent more time reading verses from the Bible. Not what I expected.
