About this title


Focuses on America's first engagement in WWII. Unpublished letters, written and oral testimony of over 350 veterans restores these gruelling months into a historical record.

From Library Journal:

This is a superb tactical study of the battle for Bataan in 1942 by a lieutenant colonel on the staff of the Pentagon who served in Bataan with the 31st Infantry. The narrow focus facilitates a detailed and perceptive presentation of Japanese and Philippine-American fighting power. Whitman makes an original contribution by concentrating on Bataan's Filipino defenders, the newly raised Philippine army and the regular Philippine Scouts. The Philippine army, despite its lack of training and equipment, did most of the fighting and the dying. And the superb performance of the American-officered Scouts suggests that U.S. military interaction with Third World cultures is not always a disaster of mutual incomprehension. Recommended for all World War II collections.
