As the Allies invaded the Japanese-held Philippines in 1944, the end of the Pacific War was within reach. But for the last 150 American POWs still held on the island of Palawan, there would be no salvation. After years of slave labor and torture, they were herded into shallow air raid shelters, and Japanese soldiers doused them with gasoline and set them on fire. Some 30 prisoners managed to escape, but by the next morning, only 11 men were left alive—and their desperate journey to freedom had just begun. Telling an inspiring tale, Stephen Moore follows the men as they evade Japanese patrols, swim shark-infested bays, and wander through treacherous jungle terrain, hoping just to survive.
