This book covers the amazing rescue of US Prisoners of War in WWII from what is known as the Bataan Death March. My wife’s grandfather served in the war, but he made the decision to never speak a word of what transpired. On his deathbed, he gave the combination to his safe to my Father-In-Law and one of the items in the safe was a copy of this book with notes written all through the book from his fellow soldiers.
Turns out he led the rescue of over 500 men but felt it wasn’t appropriate to talk about it when he got home. I think I’ve read the book five times now and it always brings me back to not only appreciating how easy my generation has it but more so to how incredibly tough the men of that generation were/are.
