This is a record of the work of an ambulance driver who was with the Eighth Army in the battle in North Africa up to the time of the Tunisia campaign. It is a graphic record of the part played by the Medical Corps in a situation in which it worked under tremendous difficulties. Unfortunately the author lacks the literary ability necessary to dramatize the terrifically dramatic events in which it played a considerable part.
