Medicine and care in combat. For the flight surgeons serving the US Army Air Forces in World War II, every day was centered around "keeping them flying." Physicians such as Dr. Lamb Myhr faced a fundamental conflict: the drive to end the war quickly by force warred with concern for the health of the pilots in their care. Dr. Myhr served across Europe and North Africa, using his skills to treat injuries, provide psychological comfort, administer as camp health inspector, and battle exotic diseases. His letters and photographs document pivotal events such as the planning meeting of Generals Clark, Patton, and Eisenhower before the invasion of Sicily, as well as the daily trials of ministering to soldiers and civilians. Dr. Myhr's travels from Africa to Auschwitz are here chronicled with fascinating detail.
