All This Hell: U.S. Nurses Imprisoned by the Japanese

Availability: In stock

by Evelyn M. Monahan and Rosemary Neidel-Greenlee

Hundreds of U.S. Army and Navy nurses were stationed in Guam and the Philippines in the first years of World War II. After the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor in December 1941, five navy nurses on Guam became the first American military women of the war to be taken prisoner by the Japanese.

More than seventy army nurses survived five months of combat conditions in the jungles of Bataan and Corregidor before being captured, only to endure more than three years in prison camps. When freedom came, the U.S. military ordered the nurses to sign agreements with the government not to discuss their horrific experiences.

Evelyn Monahan and Rosemary Neidel-Greenlee have conducted numerous interviews with survivors and scoured archives for letters, diaries, and journals to uncover the heroism and sacrifices of these brave women.

Soft cover. 228 pages. Includes black and white archive photographs. Made in the USA.
