The Secret Rescue: An untold story of American nurses and medics behind Nazi lines.

The Secret Rescue: An untold story of American nurses and medics behind Nazi lines.

There is so much to learn about nursing from its history.  In this episode of One Love for Nurses, we learn about the early history of flight nursing.  I always say that it takes a great deal of courage to be a nurse.  It especially took a great deal of courage for flight nurses and other air personal during World War II, the infancy of the specialization.  Many lives were saved through the efforts of these brave nurses and medics.  Oh, the stories they could surely share.

I love the profession of nursing.  I love its history, and the stories of everyday women and men who challenged themselves to tread through uncharted territory to be catalysts for change and innovation.  Nursing history is full of historical richness.  Unfortunately, many of these stories are at risk of slipping away with the passing of each nursing veteran.

Thankfully, author Cate Lineberry has given us a great account of World War II history while also spotlighting nursing’s contribution in the area of medical air transport.  In her book, The Secret Rescue, you will learn about the 13 nurses, 13 medics, and 4 air crew who found themselves behind Nazi lines during an ill fated air evacuation mission.  Cate is our guest on this episode of One Love for Nurses.
