About the Book

In April 1942, during World War II, tens of thousands of American and Filipino prisoners of the Japanese were forced to march miles and miles on their way to a prison camp in the Philippines. They experienced almost unimaginably horrible conditions: tropical heat, disease, torture, near-starvation, dehydration, and the sight of their fellow prisoners being brutally killed. Only about 50,000 men of the original 70,000 survived the Bataan Death March, one of the most shocking events of the war.
