The Doc of Stalingrad

THE SITUATION IN THE RUSSIAN P.O.W. CAMP WOULD BE EVEN WORSE, IF IT WEREN'T FOR STAFF-SURGEON DR. FRITZ BOEHLER. HIS SELF-SACRIFICE, HIS PERSONAL COURAGE AND MEDICAL KNOWLEDGE EASE THE SOMETIMES INCREDIBLE PHYSICAL AND PSYCHOLOGICAL STRAIN UNDER WHICH HIS FELLOW PRISONERS SUF- FER. UNDER THE MOST DIFFICULT CIRCUMSTANCES HE SAVES THE LIFE OF THE YOUNG CADET SHULTHEISS DURING AN EMERGENCY OPERATION. WHEN HE CURES THE SON OF THE RUSSIAN CAMP COMMANDER, HE IS ALSO ABLE TO WIN THE RESPECT AND ADMIRATION OF ALL THE GUARDS. HE DOES NOT JOIN THE FIRST GROUP TO BE RETURNED HOME, AS HIS CARE AND DEVOTION TO DUTY ARE TOO STRONG.
