Description
On January 2, 1942, Japanese troops marched into Manila unopposed by US forces commanded by General Douglas MacArthur. Thousands of soldiers surrendered and sent on the notorious Bataan Death March to 80 miles to a prison camp. But thousands of other Filipinos and Americans refused to surrender and hid in the Luzon hills above Bataan and Manila. This is the story of three of them, and how they successfully foiled the Japanese for more than two years, sabotaging Japanese efforts and preparing the way for MacArthur's return.

display_descriptionThe true story of three intrepid people who successfully eluded the Japanese in Manila for more than two years, sabotaging enemy efforts and preparing the way for MacArthur's return. One was a debonair polo-playing expatriate businessman who was also a U.S. Navy intelligence officer. Another was a defiant enlisted American soldier. And the third was a wily American woman, an itinerant torch singer with many names and almost as many husbands. With ample doses of intrigue, drama, skulduggery, sacrifice, and romance, this book has all the complicated heroism and villainy of the best war novels. But it is, in the end, a true tale of courage when it counted the most. --
