AND THE BRAVEST OF THESE

A report on Belgium today, written by an American who was the first woman correspondent in Belgium after the last war, and who returned in 1945. She saw a ravaged country and its people bravely picking up again and starting on a conscientious twenty year plan. She describes the bomb damage, retails the exploits of the underground, the White Brigade, the Armies of Liberation. She interviews prisoners of war, the prime minister, Van Acker, a spokesman for Prince Regent Charles, and others. She tours the Ardennes battlefield. A potpourri:- the question of the monarchy; the shortage of coal, malnutrition and lack of food; the American Army of Occupation; economic rehabilitation versus inflation, etc. A miscellany tapping a wide range of sources.
