Soldiers in Greasepaint: USO Camp Show Performers of World War II

- Hydock, Dolores
From Utah Beach to the Philippines, from wrestlers and tap dancers to the biggest names in show business, from 16,000 servicemen in an amphitheatre in southern France to 20 GIs in Jeeps in a lonely stateside outpost, USO Camp Shows during WWII were part of a diverse, hilarious, moving, and inspiring story of voluntarism and service. Storyteller Dolores Hydock shares a small slice of this big-hearted story from a remarkable time in U.S. history.
