Bay physician describes Iraq War experiences in new book
"Good Medicine, Hard Times," a book written by Bay Village resident Dr. Edward Horvath, has recently been published. Colonel Horvath served three deployments in Iraq from 2005 to 2011, where he was awarded the Bronze Star Medal. His book, a memoir about saving the lives of soldiers, enemies, and civilians amidst ongoing warfare, has been favorably reviewed by national media. A writer from the Wall Street Journal described it as “A must-read testament to acts of valor in one of our hardest wars.”
Like many physicians, Colonel Horvath was a reservist who left home and family when their country needed them. Because of their sacrifice, a reviewer from National Review magazine wrote, “In the history of warfare, no one, anywhere, had a better chance of survival after being seriously wounded than Americans fighting the War on Terror.”
Horvath retired from the Army in 2014 at age 68 and is currently a physician at the veterans hospital in Cleveland.
