On April 4, 1943, ten American prisoners of war and two Filipino convicts executed a daring escape from one of Japan's most notorious prison camps. The prisoners were survivors of the infamous Bataan Death March and the fall of Corregidor, and the prison from which they escaped was surrounded by an impenetrable swamp. Theirs was the only successful group escape from a Japanese POW camp during the Pacific war.
Called the "greatest story of the war in the Pacific" by the War Department in 1944, the full account has never been told until now. A product of years of in-depth research, John D. Lukacs's gripping description of the escape brings this remarkable tale back to life. Now a new generation can admire the resourcefulness and patriotism of the men who fought the Pacific war.
