The stories told in this book - stories from the war, stories from the courtrooms of America, and stories from the State Department and the halls of Congress - are stories that need to be heard. They are entertaining, informative, historically important, at times hopeful, at times disappointing, and always inspirational.The Battling Bastards of Bataan, and all others who paid a dear price for freedom as Pacific Theater prisoners-of-war, deserve - and need - to be remembered. Not just for them, but for us. -- From the foreword by Senators Orrin Hatch and Joseph Biden

Review: Soldier Slaves: Abandoned by the White House, Courts and Congress

User Review  - Cathy - Goodreads

I am disppointed their bill didn't pass. They get no compensation for what they went through--no work pay--no apology--nothing. How sad that this country and Japan would not recognize these valiant men who went through "hell". Read full review

User Review  - J - Goodreads

I don't know about you, but I feel like we never really learned about the Pacific Theatre of World War II. This book gives a great deal of history and personal accounts of the survivors of the Bataan Death March and those people that served in the Philippines. Read full review
