Jurado was one of the few Filipinos to graduate from the US Naval Academy [in Annapolis], and became the chief of the Philippine Army’s Off Shore Patrol in 1941. He led his squadron of three boats in the Bataan defense campaign, and managed to escape the Japanese when he ordered his flagship to Batangas. After his escape and recovery, he joined the guerrillas in Panay. He was sent to Mindoro to try to consolidate the guerrillas there, but was tragically killed by a rival guerrilla faction. This book, written by an American journalist, also recounts the parallel story of Jurado’s wife, Danday, from the time the two first met in the US until she received news of her husband’s death. - Prof. Ricardo T.
