ARTHUR, Anthony : Author

Title: DELIVERANCE AT LOS BAÑOS

ISBN #: 0-312-90346-4

The rescue by the 11th Airborne Division and Filipino Guerrillas of 2,147 civilian internees at Los Baños was an humanitarian diversion from the primary mission of the American forces in the Philippines and was, in the midst of other intensely dramatic events, all but ignored at the time. Battle-tested troops were pulled out of line and sent 30 miles behind enemy lines, within an easy day’s march of an 8,000-man highly trained Japanese division. They had an 8-hour window of opportunity and no room for error.

In selecting a handful of experiences, the result is a work that relies entirely on fact but reads like a novel.

ISBN #: 0-89096-679-6

An admirably-detailed history of the 5 fighter squadrons deployed in the Philippine Islands on Dec.7, 1941. With most of their planes destroyed or damaged in the initial Japanese attacks, the survivors fought on against overwhelming odds.

Title: PRISONER OF THE RISING SUN The Lost Diary of Brig. Gen. Lewis Beebe

ISBN #: 1-58544-481-2

Offers new evidence of the treatment accorded officers and shows how the Corregidor prisoners fared compared with the ill-fated Bataan captives. When Japanese aircraft struck airfields in the Philippines on December 8, 1941, Col. Lewis C. Beebe was Gen. Douglas MacArthur’s chief supply officer. Promoted to brigadier general, he would become chief of staff for General Wainwright in 1942. Beebe kept daily records of the Japanese invasion of the Philippines, their advance to Manila and capture of the Bataan Peninsula, and their assault on Corregidor. When Japanese troops took Corregidor, Beebe was among those captured. During his captivity, Beebe recorded in his diary descriptions of poor rations, inadequate medical care, and field work in camps in the Philippines, on Taiwan, and in Manchuria. He also describes the sometimes greedy behaviour of his fellow captives, as well as a lighter side of camp life that included POW concerts and Red Cross visits. Annotation and an epilogue by General Beebe’s son, Rev. John M. Beebe, add details about his military career.
