2 MacGregor, Mildred A. World War II Front Line Nurse by Mildred A. MacGregor
Ann Arbor, Michigan Mildred A. MacGregor 2006 047203331X / 9780472033317 First Edition Soft Cover Very Good 
AUTHOR SIGNED on title page. True first edition, published by the author. Pages are clean and tight. Illustrated with b/w photographs and maps. A fascinating read by a local WW2 veteran. "In late 1942, 30 year-old Mildred Radawiec left a comfortable position as a nurse at the University of Michigan Hospital, postponing her marriage to a soon-to-be doctor, to volunteer as a surgical nurse in the major battle theaters of the war. Radawiec was one of thirty volunteers from the hospital surgical staff that comprised the University of Michigan Unit, the 298th General Hospital, as the University of Michigan Hospital was called. Radawiec's first-person history recounts her wartime experience with sharp detail and grace and sets the stage for a you-are-there experience—from the thrill of signing up and shipping out; to the harrowing ocean crossing and the arduous trip through the Sahara; to dangerous air raids and moving at a moment's notice, often at night with the lights off to avoid attacks. Radawiec was near Omaha Beach in France soon after D-Day, June 6, 1944, and details stories of marathon stints assisting the injured on the front lines as they poured in by the hundreds. Radawiec also traveled to Belgium and Germany and set up in the area near Aachen in the fall of 1944. In Germany...even witnessed the death of a fellow nurse in a bombing attack in which medics brought in wounded soldiers by the truckload. Radawiec also leavens her story with uplifting tales of heroism, courage and intersperses the narrative with poignant letters from her family and fiancé. This personal account of war brings to the fore women's too-often-overlooked role in it. She was part of the Third Auxiliary Surgical Group in World War II and was stationed in England, North Africa, France, and Germany". ; ex. Lieutenant Mildred A. Radawiec, Army Nurse Corp. Series; B&W Illustrations; 6 X 9 1/4; 454 pages; Cover has light scuffing/rubbing, bumping, corner curl. A few of the front pages show some light crumpling. ; Signed by Author
