Rush to Danger: Medics in the Line of Fire

Noted military historian Ted Barris explores his father’s wartime experiences as a medic leading up to the Battle of the Bulge in 1944-45, and weaves into his narrative stories about the life-and-death struggles of military medical personnel during a century of service. Barris’s sources reveal – like never before – why men and women sporting the red cross on their helmets or sleeves didn’t flee to safety but chose instead to rush to assist.

Presented by The Oakville Centre, Oakville Public Library, A Different Drummer Books and Lakeshore Securities
