The true story of U.S. Marine Edmond Babler who was forced to surrender during the early days of the U.S. involvement in World War II when the fortress Island of Corregidor fell to the Japanese. Not written in the typical historical context but in a biographical view, this manuscript, transcribed from his own narrative, is Ed's story from the time he joined the Marine Corps until his return from 1,220 days of brutal captivity in Japanese prisoner of war camps. It is intended, in Ed's own words, as "A true history of my struggle for survival in Japanese Prison Camps in the jungles of the Philippine Islands, on air-fields and a coal mine in Japan."
