From PBS - The Best of Men tells the story of one remarkable doctor who revolutionized the care of paraplegics. Arriving at England's Stoke Mandeville hospital in the middle of World War II, Dr. Ludwig Guttman transformed the lives of his patients and staff. Indefatigable, charismatic, and entertaining, he refused to accept the idea that a broken back was a terminal condition. Having overcome extraordinary challenges in his own life, he insisted his patients do the same. He expected them to have relationships, jobs, and full lives. He used sport to challenge them physically and psychologically.
