"Bill" McDermott's tale of action as a combat surgeon in World War II is set against the dramatic events of the Allied invasion of Europe and the liberation of the Nazi concentration camp at Ebensee. Dr. McDermott's book originated when he found in his attic, a trunk of letters - scores of them - sent home to his young wife Blanche back in Massachusetts. These letters and observations result in a fast-paced narrative, giving an "on the spot" quality as the story unfolds. The illustrations throughout - some startling snapshotstaken at the time by the author - give an immediacy to the narrative. Maps, an index and a list of sources are included.
