Charles Granville Rob was one of those doctors. In World War II, as a Royal Army surgeon, he received the Military Cross for valor under fire, and, at another time, he acted alone in enemy-held territory in a nighttime mission to secure a victorious invasion of Sicily. After the war he conceived and implemented a surgical treatment for prevention of stroke, the first such attempt to succeed in the long history of Medicine. Any man can live dangerously, but few have so willingly, ably, and joyfully accepted risk and handled it as gracefully as did Charles Granville Rob: soldier, progenitor of vascular surgery, scientist, teacher, adventurer, and humorist. Destined for honors in the United Kingdom, he nevertheless accepted a position at the University of Rochester in New York where he established a golden age for surgery: Vascular surgery flowered, innovation extended the surgical repertoire, and enthusiasm generated comity among surgeons. The world deserves to know The Joyful Life of Charles Granville Rob: Surgeon, Soldier, Scientist.
