While researching his book, McCarthy's Bar Pete McCarthy entered McCarthy's Bar in Castletownbere, West Cork. There, Adrienne McCarthy gave him a copy of A Doctor's War, her father's wartime memoir. Pete found it unputdownable and eminently worthy of re-publication. An RAF medical officer, Aidan served in France, survived Dunkirk, and was plunged into adventures in the Japanese-American arena comparable with those of famous heroes. Interned by the Japanese in Java, he helped prisoners with ingenuity in appalling conditions. In 1944, en route to the Japanese mainland, his ship was torpedoed. A Japanese whaling boat picked him up and he was re-interned on the mainland. In Nagasaki, his life saved by the dropping of the A-bomb, he witnessed the horror and devastation it caused. Finally, he cruised home on board the Queen Mary.
