From the introduction: The origins of this booklet goes back to the mid 1990's when I was undertaking basic research on the Airborne medical services in the 1st Airborne Division which subsequently turned into the book 'Red Berets and Red Crosses'.... and since this book came out much new information has come to light both in the hidden depths of archives and from relatives of those who were airborne medics in the Second World War.
One of these stories was that of Captain Michael James who in 1944 was posted as a surgeon to 181 Airlanding Field Ambulance RAMC. He and his team ended up working in the Oosterbeek perimeter and were talen prisoner after the evacuation. This booklet is his arnhem storybut it is also the story of his team without whom he could not have functioned and also the unsung Dutch helpers. I hope it proves of interest
