SYNOPSIS:  “Captain Rick Winter, US Army Medical Corps – rich crack surgeon, thirty-four.  Quite a guy!  Tried painting on the Left Bank but gave it up.  Grand Tour that included all the hot spots east of Suez – plus enough assorted ladies to make him the darling of the tabloids.

Sobered up at twenty-three after visiting a leper colony.  Back to school.  Became a brilliant surgeon with a big practice.  Was with the Canadians in France.  Evacuated at Dunkirk.

Now in England, ready for the African invasion.  Still a wolf… three girls willing and waiting, two of them members of his own outfit.”
