Summary
  • "A Maine man, Sumner Waldron - Dr. Jack, as he was known - risked his life and the lives of his wife and teenage son to fight the injustices of Nazi Germany and to help downed Allied flyers escape to freedom. Doctor to the Resistance tells the story of the Jackson family's life in occupied Paris - how a wife and mother struggled with cold and near starvation in the terrible winters of 1941-44; how Dr. Jackson managed against the odds to keep the venerable American Hospital free of Nazi control; and how the Jackson family survived amid the intrigue and terror of underground work and resistance to the Nazis." "Young Phillip Jackson thought it was all "a great game." But the game turns tragically serious as Vichy secret police, who routinely executed resistance fighters, track the family's covert activities and close in on the Jacksons."
  • "The Jackson story is a tale of self-sacrifice under unimaginable conditions, of danger, privation, arrest, and slavery. Doctor to the Resistance is a celebration of American patriotism and valor, and of Franco-American friendship."--Jacket
