NY: American Field Service. Soft cover. AMERICAN FIELD SERVICE LETTERS. Eleven copies of the AFS (news)letters variously dated between 1943-1945: Nov 1943 No. 19, Dec 1943 No. 20, Oct 1944 No 30, Dec 1944 No 32, Jan 1945 No 33, Feb 1945 No 34, Mar 1945 No 35, Apr 1945 No 36, May 1945 No 37, Jun-Jul 1945 No 38, and Sep 1945 No 40. Founded during WWI AFS were volunteer "ambulancers", largely from American families of substantial means. The service was reconstituted in WWII, sending ambulance units first to France and then to the British Armies in North Africa, Italy, India-Burma and with the Free French for the final drive from southern France to Germany. The letters in these publications are eyewitness accounts, many written as daily diaries, of the work of individual volunteers in those campaigns. Each issue measures 8.5x11", with a photographic or pictorial cover, issues varying in length from 24-26 pages, stapled spines. A few covers detached, most worn about edges. Very Good. Item #013384
