Gomez, the author captures the discipline, courage, sense of humor, and pride of the Cuban volunteers through the firsthand accounts recorded here. Its also very personable, telling how they struggled to leave their families, but felt it their revolutionary duty to help, and that there was no greater honor than to dedicate their lives to help humanity in the face of worldwide oppression. You really admire and connect with these doctors and medical personnel, and it should make you want to learn more about Cuba.
