'A first-class historian' - Wall Street Journal Available in paperback for the first time, this is the full story of the mission that inspired Hampton Side's recent mega best-seller, Ghost Soldiers, told in searing, meticulous detail. One night in 1945, a band of Americans and Filipinos raided a notorious Japanese prison camp and, facing overwhelming odds, rescued 511 sick and dying American prisoners and led them safely through thirty miles of jungle. Based on interviews with survivors, this is a thrilling true-life adventure story of heroism and grit.
