This is the story of an authentic Canadian hero, a man whose courage and determination saved the lives of countless soldiers and civilians in the besieged mountains of Yugoslavia during the Second World War. On the night of May 12, 1944, Major Colin Scott Dafoe; a surgeon on assignment with Britain's Special Operations Executive parachuted into eastern Bosnia. His mission was to provide medical aid to the men and women who were Marshal Tito's Partisans. In a makeshift hospital constructed from parachutes, Dafoe operated on the maimed and wounded. And when an enemy offensive forced the Partisans into the rugged mountains and dense forests, Dafoe and his portable "parachute ward" followed, operating in the field of combat. Based on Dafoe's own record of his wartime mission, and through the reminiscences of his family, friends, and colleagues, The Parachute Ward recounts the saga of a truly remarkable man.
