Editorial Reviews


This is the true story of a nurse, Marcia Gates, during World War II and her experiences during the battle of Bataan and three years as a prisoner of war. But it is more than that because this story also relates how the families at home were feeling--frustrated and concerned about their lack of information about Marcia and her safety.
This book is easy to read and many will find it difficult to put down as one wants to know--does Marcia make it home? The format is also augmented by actual letters written by Marcia, other nurses and from family members to Marcia. It may be difficult for some who are so used to the modern e-mail system to even imagine the problems of letters not arriving home for months and how that effected the family who used every resource they could to get any information they could of their daughter.  The author uses these letters to carefully weave a true account of what was happening on both sides of the world.
I found the story exciting, surprised by some of the descriptions of conditions and wondered why I hadn't heard this story before. The author has brought out one of the untold stories of World War II--about a nurse. I believe this book will have wide appeal to many audiences including: medical personnel, historians, veterans and anyone interested in good story with a happy ending.--Edward Kelly, Military Writers Society of America

From the Inside Flap

Courage Under Fire
 Gradually the battle got closer. We could hear the shells day and night ...and the bombs. You see, the guns on Corregidor were firing over our heads andthe Japanese were also firing over us at the Rock. We had several hits on thehospital, too. Two of them a direct hit on a ward that killed quite a largenumber of wounded men. The first time they hit the hospital, the Japanese sentus an apology, "So sorry please. It will not happen again." But it did happenagain ... a number of times.
