Abstract:

Relying largely on first-person accounts of those involved, the author covers the tragic accident and fireball that brought death or injury to more than a hundred paratroopers at Pope Air Force Base, North Carolina, on 23 March 1994. She then chronicles not only the initial response for treating mass casualties, especially the severely burned, but also the sustained response by the Brooke Army Medical Center's burn unit at Fort Sam Houston, Texas. She ends her gripping account with realistic implications for future crises.
