Certain Samaritans

By Lovejoy, Esther Pohl

New York: Macmillan, 1927. An intrepid group of women formed the American Woman's Hospitals service during World War Iand first provided nursing and hospital services in France. In the aftermath of the war they turned their attention to other areas of urgent need, providing medical care and relief to the war-torn and destitute populations in Serbia, Macedonia, Albania, Armenia, Russia and Turkey. The author provides her own eyewitness account of the destruction of Smryna in September 1922. The AWH follwed those refugees who survived to Greec and established emergency medical services in Greece with particular support for the refugee women and children of Asia Minor, efforts to control epidemics through a quarantine station on Makronissos, and assistance to a second wave of refugees from the Black Sea who were sent to Macdedonia and Thrace in the exchange of populations after the Treaty of Lausanne. The benefits provided were incalculable: "On the Ægean Islands and mainland of Greece, the American Women's Hospitals' service for refugees expanded beyond all expectations. During the past eleven years, 39 hospitals (including Near East Relief orphanage infirmaries) have been organized and conducted at different times and places. Scores of inlying and outlying clinics, a quarantine island, camps and barracks for pestilential diseases, food and clothing depots, health and child welfare centers, maternity service and nurses' training, have been carried on in connection with these hospitals" 302p. plates maps on endpapers. 1st.US Ed...

Ill Met By Moonlight

By Moss,W.Stanley

London: Buchan & Enright, 1985. On 26 April 1944, Generalmajor Karl Kreipe, commanding the German forces occupying Crete, left H Q at Heraklion for his perisonal quarters. He never arrived. Instead, he was driven past 24 of his own guard posts, acknowledging the sentries'salutes while a hidden British officer pressed a gun into his side. 20 days later Kreipe and his chief abductors - Major Patrick Leigh-Fermor and the author - reached British-held Cairo. One of the finest true adventure stories of the last war, this justly famous book describes the secret landings, the plan, the stalking and victim. Moss's sharp eye brings to life the national characteristics of thw German solider, the British officer, and the Cretan andarte - characteristics which often showed themselves all too strongly during the day of "monotony, and sweat, and thirst, and sickening fear' in the mountains, hiding from a huge Nazi manhunt. The tale (based on Moss's own diaries) is told with humour and tolerance and, the fear and discomfort forgotten, is today remembered as one of romantic valour. The exploit earned even the Germans' grudging admiration, and showed them that their most exalted commanders were not safe from death or capture. 192p. illus. Withdrawn from the Royal Canadian Military Institute, Ex-Library with usual marks. Solidly rebound with original paper wraps laminated to boards.. Reprint.. Rebound Copy. Very Good. Ex-Library.
