BATAAN DEATH MARCH by Lester Tenney. Foreword by Vice Adm. James B. Stockdale. A rare first-person account of the horrors of the infamous Philippines Bataan Death March and life in Japanese POW camps. A highly readable, shocking tale.
Captured by the Japanese after the fall of Bataan, Lester Tenney was one of the very few who would survive the legendary Death March and three and a half years in Japanese prison camps. With an understanding of human nature, a sense of humor, sharp thinking, and fierce determination, Tenney endured the rest of the war as a slave laborer in Japanese prison camps. My Hitch in Hell is an inspiring survivor's epic about the triumph of human will despite unimaginable human suffering.
