Survival in the Southwest Pacific


Author(s):
Abstract:
Damon Alberty of Greensboro joined the U.S. Army early in 1941 \"to see the big world that surrounded the town.\" He was sent to the Philippines where he was taken prisoner on Bataan after the Japanese invasion and capture of the islands in April 1942. After surviving the Bataan Death March, he was sent to Japan in July 1943 where he did slave labor until the Japanese surrender. Samuelson recounts Alberty's horrific experiences as a prisoner of war from April 1942 till September 1945.
