Blast Injuries compiles of case histories of patients who met with blast injuries during the height of the terrorist insurgency which devastated Sri Lanka for thirty long years. This is just a mere glimpse into the horrors of war and the experience the author went through as a trainee surgeon.

The author has tried to omit technical jargon in the book to make it reader-friendly and easily understandable for anyone who wishes to read it. Pictures can be disturbing to some individuals, so reader discretion is strongly advised.
