Seven survivors of the WWII battle for Bataan in the Philippines help the author retrace the footprints of his brother who never revealed any of the ordeals he went thru. The period covers November, 1941 thru September, 1945. This story includes the start of the war with the Japanese, the battle for Bataan, the Bataan Death March, the POW camps in the Philippines, the Hell Ships to Japan, life as a slave working in the coal mines of Japan, the liberation by U.S. Forces & finally the trip back home to their loved ones. The warrior code of Bushido said "Do not survive to suffer the dishonor of capture." Surrender made captives subhuman & this the Japanese believed. Read how sadistic the Japanese were during the Death March & in the prison camps. One of three American prisoners died in captivity & for Asians it was far worse. These were young men in their twenties some even younger. Through no fault of their own they were expendable as there was no hope of rescue. The Dear March alone claimed the lives of 16,950 Americans & Filipinos. There was murder, disease, beheading & starvation. These survivors of the Bataan Death March, torpedoed hellships & slave mines tell hair-raising stories, illustrated by stark illustrations that will haunt you forever. War is not a John Wayne movie. It is Hell on Earth as this book will illustrate.Tokarz, Stanley R. is the author of 'Silent tears: Lest we forget' with ISBN 9780970694102 and ISBN 0970694105.
