Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Credited as a major source for last year's Ghost Soldiers by Hampton Sides, Hour of Redemption: The Heroic WWII Saga of America's Most Daring POW Rescue covers the elite U.S. Sixth Army Ranger force's liberation of 516 Allied prisoners from the Cabanatuan camp in the Philippines, most of whom were American survivors of the Bataan Death March. Former U.S. Army Captain Forrest Bryant Johnson first published this account in 1978, having interviewed more than 500 participants over a six-year period. Included are the important contributions of the Filipino guerrillas, who kept nearby Japanese forces at bay and decimated an entire enemy battalion without a single fatality. American causalities were two killed and only a few wounded; all POWs in the camp were rescued and taken back more than 25 miles to American lines. Japanese casualties totaled over 1,100. Photos and maps not seen by PW.
Library Journal
The brutality suffered by many prisoners of war in a POW camp is impossible to fully describe. Those who survived the Bataan Death March in the Philippine Islands during World War II, and who managed miraculously to live through the horrendous treatment by their Japanese Army captors at Cabanatuan, are the real heroes of this history. It details, in the former POWs' own words, their story of capture and ultimate liberation. The Cabanatuan POW camp was as infamous for cruelty to its prisoners as the later "Hanoi Hilton" was during the Vietnam War. This history is written in narrative style from interviews with former POWs, the famous Alamo Scouts, and Army Rangers led by Lt. Col. A. Henry Mucci. Johnson, a former U.S. Army captain, carefully documents the instrumental role of Philippine indigenous guerrilla forces in the daring raid. The pace of history accelerates toward a dramatic ending. Highly recommended for World War II collections and public libraries. Gerald Costa, Brooklyn P.L., NY Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
