About the Book

This book is about the author’s true experience during WWII when the Japanese Imperial Forces invaded Bataan, her home province, where most of the United States Armed Forces in the Far East (USAFFE) were encamped and was made the last stand against the invading forces. I’d like the public and even the whole world to see what I saw, to feel what I felt and still feel (for history doesn’t disappear), to remember the fallen fellowmen of ours, to feel their pains and the untold sufferings they endured and went through, to respect human dignity, to understand that war and violence doesn’t pay. That we, as human beings, must work together for the promotion of peace—that we may all live in a world of peace and progress.
