Sacrifice of their Youth at Bataan
This is the true story of two young Americans who joined the Army Air Corps in the summer of 1940. From Angel Island in San Francisco Bay they sailed for the Philippines. There at Clark Field a few hours after the day of disaster at Pearl Harbor,they saw bombs rain down destroying planes sitting wing to wing on the field. They fought for months in the jungles of Bataan until the food and ammunition was gone and they were surrendered to the Japanese. As prisoners of war they endured the Death March, the horror of the camps, the Hell-ships and the slave labor. With determination and a will to survive they returned to their families after five long years.
