    1. A, mainly pictorial, history of Doc McIllvoys medical unit s during the main Parachute Infantry campaigns in WWII.Goes into very interesting detail as to uniforms and equipment, but also tells many personal accounts.A great read for those interested in PArachute Infantry and in medical history.
