AT HIS SIDE by George Korson


Email this review


A full review of the activities of the Red Cross in all the theatres of war, which is given dramatic, human values by the liberally interlaced personal narratives of the Red Cross workers -- in fact it's almost their book rather than Korson's. Here in clubs, canteens, hospital wards is the Red Cross girl, her ingenuity, cheerfulness, selflessness, making the most of little -- forgetting everything in her one concern to do a job for GI Joe. From Pearl Harbor to the evacuation of the wounded from Manila, on to Australia and the South Pacific, Buna and uadalcanal. North Africa, the CBI route, Iceland, Alaska and the Al, Italy, England and France. The magnitude of the job the Red Cross is doing is fully recorded here in personal terms.
