The US nurses stationed in the Far East when America entered World War II faced the reality of combat, the anguish of surrender and the brutality of captivity. This volume aims to tell their story so that American men and women can appreciate the depth of sacrifices made by their countrymen and women in the cause of freedom. It provides an account of their struggle and of the fighting that took place on Bataan and Corregidor.
