Battle Scars is about a young soldiers fight against cancer, specifically advanced testicular cancer, followed by benign tumours, followed by deep vein thrombosis, followed by a benign tumour turning malignant. He obviously survives all that to then write this book. It's a good but I also found it rather depressing, which is the very thing the author noted feeling when he read Lance Armstrong's cancer memoir

Major Matthew Carr is a professional soldier who has served in Iraq and Afghanistan Battle Scars. A Soldier's Strategy for Fighting Cancer.

Major Matthew Carr is a professional soldier who has served in Iraq and Afghanistan. When faced with a cancerous invasion of his body, Matthew used the expert training he learnt in the Australian Army as a strategy to wage his own fierce and relentless battle with an enemy force. In Battle Scars we learn that the main principles employed by militaries in the conduct of Counter Insurgency Operations can be applied to modern life as much as fighting cancer: 'In January 2002 I was 26, 10-foot tall and bullet proof. Not only well trained and well prepared for war, I was looking for a fight. That same month I was diagnosed with testicular cancer. I suddenly found myself in a battle that I had not been expecting. It was not the type of fight I had been hoping for.'

Purchased this book recently for a buddy who had also served with the marines in Iraq and Afghanistan and had testicular cancer. He had been in remission the last several years. He recently found out he has a tumor that needs to be removed from his lymph node. Hopefully it's not cancerous. Anyway the book came in a timely manner; something he totally appreciated.

Will report back later on what he thought of it.

Twelve years ago Major Matt Carr, then a 25-year-old Army officer, was diagnosed with advanced testicular cancer.

What followed were situations this young man who had no previous medical history had never anticipated: painful courses of chemotherapy, several surgical operations, coming to terms with the diagnosis and developing a personal strategy to fight the disease. He learned the value of Yoga, Qi Jong and Surfing, re-evaluated his life and his priorities - and has now returned to full time work in the Army. He has recently completed a tour of duty overseas.

The book he has written of his experiences - Battle Scars - makes a great read.

Using analogies from his military background to describe his battles against cancer, Carr compares fighting cancer to Counter-Insurgency (COIN) Operations. He describes how one can apply the basic principles of COIN Warfare and use the body as well as external resources to win what is, in effect, a civil war created by malignant rogue cells within one's body. Anyone who has served in the defence services will appreciate his descriptions of using Conventional Forces (Chemotherapy) Artillery Barrage (Radiotherapy) and Special Forces (Surgery) to attack the enemy.

Carr's book has some valuable insights and lessons for anyone faced with a diagnosis of cancer - `a disease that has taken so much from me and brought me so close to death, and yet has also given me the strength and confidence to embrace life so much more graciously'.

He advises readers `If you can change your perspective, the limitations cancer imposes on you become not a drawback to be bemoaned, but an incentive to seize new opportunities."

I strongly recommend Battle Scars not only to patients diagnosed with cancer, but also to the doctors who look after them.

It is an inspiring read.
