Speaker Series: Ted Barris – Rush to Danger: Medics in the Line of Fire
November 24 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Lost in the WWII story of the Battle of the Bulge lay an account of sacrifice and survival that took historian Ted Barris nearly a lifetime to discover- the story of his own father. Throughout the winter of 1945, sergeant medic Alex Barris waged a battle night and day to save lives in the middle of the bloodiest campaign the US Army faced during the liberation of Europe. But the author’s pursuit of his father’s story revealed an even greater challenge – learning what it was that motivates military medics, surgeons, nursing sisters, stretcher-bearers, orderlies and ambulance drivers to disregard their own well being to save the lives of others on the battlefield.
