AAS Member Benefit – Free Author Event at The American Club
Join us and hear more from author Liz Coward about her book, Blood and Bandages – Fighting for life in the RAMC Field Ambulance 1940 -1946.
“A story rarely told, Liz Coward tackles a first-hand account of war, that of William Earl’s, illustrating the camaraderie, the separation from family, and the losses and horrors of the battlefield. His is the story of the Italian Campaign as experienced by the field paramedics who could not fight back, only strive to save lives. A great read, well researched, which provides an insight into a role which rarely garners attention.”
