Description
Following exclusive interviews with more than 30 survivors, military historian Bill Sloan tells the story of the outnumbered American soldiers and airmen who stood against invading Japanese forces in the Philippines at the beginning of World War II, and continued to resist their captors through three harrowing years as POWs. For four months the men and women of the U.S. garrison fought against overwhelming enemy numbers, forcing the Japanese to pay a heavy cost for every inch of ground they gained on the Bataan peninsula. After the surrender came the infamous Bataan Death March, where up to 18,000 American and Filipino prisoners died or were murdered as they marched 65 miles under the most hellish conditions imaginable. Rather than picturing these defenders as victims of a powerful and sadistic enemy, however, Sloan emphasizes their remarkable courage and resourcefulness.
