This book is a detailed diary of the 95th Evacuation Hospital of the United
States Army, from April 1943 through May 1945, as it moved through North
Africa, Italy, France, and Germany. Zachary B. Friedenberg wrote the text on
the basis of his personal experiences and remembrances plus the diaries of
several physicians, nurses, and enlisted men from the hospital. Following the
war, Dr. Friedenberg finished his residency and became a professor of
orthopaedic surgery at the University of Pennsylvania.
