Abstract:

An epic story of faith, hope, and love. Ray Whipps was an infantryman under General Patton in the trenches of Normandy, Paris, and Belgium; Betty was a field nurse in Cherbourg, France. Both strong Christians, the two bonded over their shared faith, and as Betty nursed Ray back to health after an injury, they fell in love and vowed to marry after the war. When Ray was captured by German forces and held in Stalag VII, Germany's largest prisoner of war camp, his faith was put to the ultimate test as he endured weeks marked by brutality, malnutrition, back-breaking labor, and near-constant death.
