The Royal Army Medical Corps was present during all engagements in the Second World War. From the frozen wastes of Norway through to liberation from the death camps of Germany and the Far East, RAMC personnel were frequently close to the front line, risking their lives to provide medical support to a mobile army in a mechanised war. Nearly 3,000 army medics were killed during the war as a result of enemy action and exposing themselves to dangerous tropical diseases. Using much previously unpublished material from public and private family archives, this book charts the story of those who remained true to the motto of the RAMC: Faithful in Adversity. AUTHOR: After graduating in History from the University of Sheffield in the early 1990s, John Broom pursued a career in teaching, firstly in his chosen subject and latterly with children with Autism. A chance inheritance of family papers eleven years ago prompted his interest in the spiritual and ethical issues of the twentieth-century world wars. John has been awarded a PhD on Christianity in the British Armed Services by the University of Durham, and is the author of four published books: 'Opposition to the Second World War' (Pen & Sword, 2018); 'A History of Cigarette and Trade Cards' (Pen & Sword, 2018); 'Fight the Good Fight: Voices of Faith from the Second World War' (Pen & Sword, 2016); 'Fight the Good Fight: Voices of Faith from the First World War' (Pen & Sword, 2015).
