Abstract:

"Against a backdrop of sweat and blood, stifling dust, glaring heat, and men and machines, volunteer American Ambulance drivers are bringing mercy into the hell of far-flung battlefields. Theirs is a story of gallantry and courage which, up to now, has never been told. This thrilling record of the group of drivers who were attached to the incomparable British Eighth Army is representative of the work they are performing throughout the war-torn world. Andrew Geer, a member of the first American Field Service Corps to go to Africa, tells a graphic story of their work."--Jacket.
