Descripción

"FitzPatrick tells hois story in THE HIKE INTO THE SUN. With an overview of traditional Japanese attitudes, he contrasts the callousness of some of his captors with the knidness of others, both soldiers and civilians. He depicts the ineptitude of General Douglas MacArthur and the resourcefulness of his commanding officer, Colonel Ernest Miller. He recounts the futile escape attempts by some Americans and the heroic efforts by others to sustain their fellow prisoners in body and spirit amid the constant stench of death. Ane he honors the indomitable Philippine Scout Infantry and the civilians who risked their lives to give the prisoners food and medicine." This book has 243 pages and is illustrated throughout.

Sinopsis:

Sergeant Bernard T. Fitzpatrick endured the long road to Japanese prisoner of war camps, an event known thereafter as the Bataan Death March. In Japan he was forced to work at the Yawata Steel Works at Kokura-the original target of the Allies' second atomic bomb. Fitzpatrick's service at Clark Field in the Philippines, the brutal fighting on Bataan, and the harrowing details of his time as a Japanese POW are detailed. Interspersed are his thoughts on U.S. preparations for the Pacific war, his Japanese captors, and the American, Filipino and Japanese men and women who risked their lives to ease the harsh conditions in the camps.
