just when i thought a book that will finally explain in detail what happened during those years, well, turned out to be a big disappointment. for one thing, if the author did spent 20 years researching this interesting period, he forgot to research the side of the filipinos. too much superlatives are tacked on american exploits, while the atrocities that happened were downplayed into mere allegations. to make the book sounds like it's fair, the author would every now and then pepper phrases like 'brave and courageous filipinos'. what the author keep forgeting is the fact that the americans went to the philippines and not vice versa. for the life of me, i can't understand how all of a sudden, the filipinos are the bad guys. with this type of mentality, our invasion of iraq suddenly is justified. if you like to read stories were americans are always the good guys and could never do any wrong, perhaps you'd like this book, but if you're searching for the truth, keep searching...
