Apocalypse Undone recounts Preston Hubbard's four-and-a-half year odyssey from a young, idealistic CCC worker to a much older, troubled man full of contempt for war and those who make it. He survived the Bataan Death March; imprisonment at Camp O'Donnell, where the death rate exceded 400 a day; a jungle work detail on Tayabas Isthmus; the starvation diet of Manila's Bilibid Prison; a 17 day voyage to Japan on a Hell Ship; and a Japanese POW camp bombed by American planes.
