Survivor
World War II, Bataan Death March
3 1/2 Year Prisoner of War of the Japanese

During World War II, one of twenty-five POW’s in Europe died as prisoners of the Germans while one of three POW’s in the South Pacific died as prisoners of the Japanese. For the 200th CA (AA) from New Mexico, this number was one of two.

This is the story of one soldier – what his life was before the
War, what he went through to survive the savage treatment
of the Japanese, and his struggle to live a normal life whenhe returned to his wife and daughter after the defeat of and
liberation from his Japanese captors.
