"Courage is a quality God has seen fit to dispense with utmost care. The men of Bataan were His chosen favorites."
Major General Edward P. King, Jr., USA
Commanding General, Luzon Forces, 1942

This narrative is dedicated to my beloved wife Jane and to all United States of America military personnel who served in World War II on Bataan and Corregidor and endured the rigors of captivity inflicted on us by the soldiers of the Imperial Japanese Army.
