Corregidor in Peace and War

By Charles M. Hubbard & Collis H. Davis, Jr.

HB, 216 pp. 53 color and 115 B&W illustrations. University of Missouri Press,2006. ISBN 9780826217127.

The purpose of this book entirely escapes me. It is not large enough to be a coffee-table book, although it is largely filled with illustrations. It presents something of a brief history of Corregidor, but that can hardly be taken seriously, and it would seem too expensive to be a souvenir.
The illustrations, largely period photographs interspersed with current color views of the island, are large and attractive, but other than size, offer nothing really new, except perhaps more Japanese propaganda photos than are commonly seen. Perhaps a better strategy would have been to limit the book to illustrations, omitting the text entirely.
The text is, sadly, a disaster. It best resembles a paper written late the night before it was due, by a high school student devoid of any knowledge of the subject. To cap it off, it is not particularly well written, and shows no signs of having been edited at all.
The book is overflowing with errors, many of which are contradicted elsewhere in the same book. Even an hour spent on the Internet would have caught many of the mistakes. A complete list would be tiresome and far too lengthy, but some of the more glaring, or amusing, include: p. 46 ("Arthur Douglas MacArthur, who in 1944 would attain the rank of general of the army"), p. 53 ("Buffington-Crocier Disappearing Carriage" and "on Corregidor, the primary artillery consisted of fourteen-inch and ten-inch breech-loading rifle cannons"), p. 82 ("battery Crockett boasted two 10-inch guns"), p. 54 ("Fort Drum on El Fraile Island . . . had two custom-built fourteen-inch guns"), and p.

Format: Hardcover
Corregidor in Peace and War is the remarkable true history of Corregidor, a beautiful island located at the entrance of Manila Bay, and best known for its crucial role in the defense of the Philippines during World War II. Chronicling Corregidor's story from when Ferdinand Magellan claimed the Philippines for Spain to modern developments after World War II, Corregidor in Peace and War is peppered throughout with more than 150 illustrations, including an amazing gallery of black-and-white and color photography. Written to appeal to readers of all backgrounds, Corregidor in Peace and War is an absorbing contribution to Filipino history and deserves recognition for telling the oft-overlooked side of Corregidor's story.
