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.
