Summary
When the Japanese began their brutal occupation of the Philippines in January 1942, 76,000 ill and starving Filipino and American troops tried to hold out on Bataan and Corregidor. That spring, most of the men were thrown into Japanese POW camps while dozens of others slipped away to organize guerrilla forces. Kaminski tells the story of four American women who were part of this little-known resistance movement: Gladys Savary, Claire Phillips, Yay Panlilio, and Peggy Utinsky. The nature of their clandestine work meant that the truth behind their dangerous activities had to be obscured as long as the Japanese occupied the Philippines
Summary
Drawing on archival research, FBI documents and memoirs, a harrowing story follows four American women who, driven by extraordinary circumstances into acts of heroism to aid the Allied cause, smuggled supplies and information to guerrillas and prisoners in Japanese POW camps, remaining hidden behind a veil of subterfuge to avoid capture
