After growing up as a desert rat in the Coober Pedy outback, Terry Ledgard was no stranger to mischief and adventure. Having survived puberty unscathed, he joined the Army and rose through the ranks to become an SAS medic, and soon found himself heading for Afghanistan.
Life in Afghanistan was hectic and intense. In between life-and-death missions and makeshift surgery out in the field, pranks and mischief kept spirits up back on the base. Courage under fire was important, but maybe not as important as being to laugh it all off at the end of the day.
As Terry integrated back into the Real World, his life became a slow-motion train wreck when he faced a gritty battle with post-traumatic stress disorder. Luckily, though, the Army had taught him everything he needed to overcome the affliction, and through hard work, determination and his trademark humour, he reclaimed himself.
Immediate, funny and often outrageous in its honesty, Bad Medicine is an exhilarating on-the-ground account of life as an SAS medic in the world's most intense warzone.
