Major Matthew Carr is a professional soldier who has served in Iraq and Afghanistan. When faced with a cancerous invasion of his body, Matthew used the expert training he learnt in the Australian Army as a strategy to wage his own fierce and relentless battle with an enemy force. In January 2002, Matthew Carr was 25, ten foot tall and bullet proof. Not only was he trained and well prepared for war, he was looking for a fight. That same month, Matthew was diagnosed with testicular cancer. He suddenly found himself in a battle that he had not been expecting, and it certainly wasn't the type of fight he had been hoping for. In Battle Scars we learn that the main principles employed by militaries in the conduct of Counter Insurgency Operations can be applied to modern life as much as fighting cancer.
