I knew the author. I represented him in a car accident case for USAA. He was a tough guy, who told me about his book and some of his experiences. He was very humble and down played any heroics on his part. I found the book very interesting and his personal account of the surrender, the original march, the agreement with his friends to pool their resources and their escape sustained my interest. I was drawn back to this book after reading Ghost Soldiers which is about the rescue of the remaining POWs and the massacre of other POWs. I originally read this book nearly 20 years ago but it made a lasting impression on me. This book piqued my interest in similar stories like Andersonville.

It is good to remind ourselves that the mistreatment seen in the Phillipines and Andersonville of prisoners even in the time of war is no excuse.

Excellent personal narrative of some little known aspects of the defense of the Philippines in 1941, particularly the Inland Seas Defense Project and its aftermath.
