Description

"The two-week battle for Corregidor was complicated by the American's gross underestimation of enemy strength: expecting a few hundred demoralized defenders, they encountered more than 6,000 Japanese soldiers and marines deployed in tunnels and caves, every man dedicated to the Bushido code that dictated a fight to the death. As the dust was settling, MacArthur himself came ashore and was greeted by the commander of the victorious U.S. Army troops. 'Sir, ' said Col. George Jones, 'I present to you the Fortress Corregidor' -- a stirring conclusion to a dramatic and well-told story". -- Publishers Weekly
