Little known story about the war in the Pacific.
This will be the second of my occasional book reviews. This time I was inspired to write by this fascinating story from the Philippines. There have certainly been a number of excellent books and movies based on the POW experience and escape. Most recent would be the book and movie Unbroken, which also deals with an unwilling guest of the Japanese. But this story probably has even more in common with The Great Raid, which is about a late war mission to rescue POWs held in the Phillipines. At least one of those men rescued appears in this earlier story, and that rescue mission came about in part due to information from the escapees detailed here.
