Free (Kindle) Surviving Bataan and Beyond [WWII Military POW Memoir]
Surviving Bataan and Beyond: Colonel Irvin Alexander's Odyssey as a Japanese Prisoner of War by Colonel Dominic J. Caraccilo is a retrospective WWII-era military memoir of exactly what it says in the title, free courtesy of publisher Stackpole as part of their eponymous Military History series.
Currently free @ Amazon (not available to Canadians). Unlikely to show up elsewhere, as Stackpole freebies have traditionally been Amazon-only.
• Deeply moving, intensely graphic account of World War II prisoners of war
• Includes a gut-wrenching description of the Bataan Death March
Few American prisoners of war during World War II suffered more than the group that was captured on the Bataan Peninsula in the Philippines. The men were forced to endure the infamous Death March, a series of overcrowded prison camps, and the "hell ships" transporting them to Japan and Korea. Among them was Col. Irvin Alexander, who recounts his harrowing experience as a captive of the Japanese. As a midlevel commander, he knew the politics behind the surrender in April 1942, but he also suffered with the rest of the men through a horrific confinement. This is the story of one man's struggle to survive a brutal, often unfathomable captivity.
