Dare and Live
Dare and Live is a demonstration of raw courage in the face of overwhelming odds against the superior military power of the Imperial Japanese Forces in Negros Islands, Philippines after the United States Armed Forces in the Philippines lost in the battles of Bataan and Corrigedor Islands. M/Sgt. Jorge G. Herrera, Jr. did not surrender to the Japanese Army in Negros Islands, instead he gathered 3 Filipinos and they started the recruitment and training of other Guerrilla Soldiers. He established a Bivouac at the mountain sides of Negros Islands. He equipped his hideout with telephone communication for fast intelligence. He staged many ambushes against the Japanese Soldiers. The Japanese Army hired a female Filipino and sent her on a secret mission of setting up an entrapment for the capture of M/Sgt. Jorge G. Herrera, Jr. It was strange how Jorge G. Herrera, Jr. discovered the plot of the Japanese Army against him. He eluded the Japanese Army dragnet. M/Sgt. Jorge G. Herrera, Jr. must have been the only Filipino Guerrilla Leader who captured, alive, 21 Japanese Soldiers in an ambush encounter.
