Out for Blood The Pursuit of Life for the Wounded on the Fighting Fronts of World War II

Out for Blood

Samenvatting

Blood and plasma may be the greatest gift of the “Greatest Generation”-their life’s blood given back at home for the wounded on the fighting front. They sent more than a million pints to war! And we will never know how many men and women walk the world today - or will do so in generations to come - because the life of a father or grandfather was saved by one of those gifts of a blood donor during World War II.A radio show called Life to the Front, broadcast weekly over WEEI, the Columbia Broadcasting System’s New England network outlet in Boston, helped keep alive the connection between the home front and the fighting fronts.Each week the broadcast was dedicated “To all themen of the armed forces of the United States... who - on every fighting front in the world - daily risk their lives in the service of their country......that they might live.”Out for Blood includes first-hand accounts of actual participants in some of the war’s toughest battles, and features actual scripts from Life to the Front.
