On January 2, 1942, Japanese troops marched into Manila unopposed by US forces commanded by General Douglas MacArthur. Thousands of soldiers surrendered and sent on the notorious Bataan Death March to 80 miles to a prison camp. But thousands of other Filipinos and Americans refused to surrender and hid in the Luzon hills above Bataan and Manila. This is the story of three of them, and how they successfully foiled the Japanese for more than two years, sabotaging Japanese efforts and preparing the way for MacArthur's return.
Detailing the occupation of the Philippines by Japan in World War II, Macarthur's Spies is a gripping read, as thriling as any work of fiction. Will enlighten and interest anyone with even the slightest knowledge on the subject, or those that are eager to learn.
