Description
On graduating from West Point in 1940, Lieutenant John Wright was assigned to Corregidor, Philippine Islands. Captured there by the Japanese, he endured three and a half years of POW conditions described in subsequent war crimes trials as the worst of World War II. This book is built around a diary he smuggled through countless inspections during his imprisonment. It offers a gripping account of voyage aboard a hellship from Manila to Japan and details how he and other prisoners coped--or failed to cope--with extremely harsh treatment, disease and hunger.
