Anthony Gibbs & Phillips, 1961, Hardcover, Book Condition: Good Condition, Dust Jacket Condition: Fair, First UK Edition
The grim and horrifying background of this book is the giant prisoner-of-war camp at Stalingrad, with its thousands of German prisoners. It is the tragic story of a band of medical men who, in the icy winters and under primitive conditions, with insufficient instruments, cut off from all medical supplies, almost starving, without hope for themselves, knew only one duty - to help others. Many people have co-operated on this work, including former German prisoners of war whose experiences the author has collected during years of research to produce this book, written in the terse, hard, and realistic language of the subject demands.
