First-hand account of guerrilla war on Luzon
An interesting account of one American's experience on Luzon in the Philippines following the American surrender in 1942. With little or no support from the United States, these Americans and their Filipino comrades-in-arms carried on the fight against the Japanese for three years in whatever capacity they could. Having been stationed on Luzon for several years, I am familiar with many of the places where these events took place. The narrative would have been much easier to listen to had the reader been given coaching on the proper pronunciation of Philippine words and place names. The author's closing evaluation of the post-war treatment of the Philippines in general and Filipino soldiers by the United States is, in my opinion, quite accurate. Overall an enjoyable read.
