Language/Translation Info: EnglishSummary: "On January 2, 1942, Japanese troops marched into Manila unopposed by U.S. forces. Manila was a strategic port, a romantic American outpost, and a jewel of a city. Thousands of soldiers surrendered and were marched off to the notorious prison camps. But thousands of other Filipinos and Americans refused to surrender and hid in the Luzon hills above Bataan and Manila. Tokyo saw its conquest of the Philippines as the key in its plan to control all of Asia, including Australia. The Allies' hopes for stopping them depended on retaking Manila--and on the deeds of the largely unheralded resistance movement there. Here is the true story of three intrepid people who successfully eluded the Japanese for more than two years, sabotaging enemy efforts and preparing the way for MacArthur's triumphant return... With ample dose of intrigue, drama, skulduggery, sacrifice, and romance, MacArthur's Spies has all the complicated heroism and villainy of the best war novels. But it is, in the end, a true tale of courage when it counted the most." List(s) this item appears in: Drew's List of Items to Check Out | Afterwar: World War II Film Festival and Exhibit
