Rescue at Los Baños: The Most Daring Prison Camp Raid of World War II

b00leyb6jk-01-lBook #14: Rescue at Los Baños: The Most Daring Prison Camp Raid of World War II, Bruce Henderson

After the invasion by the Japanese, civilians in the Philippines found themselves prisoners of war.  This is the story of the 2000 people who were interned at Los Baños at the rescue by paratroopers as ordered by Douglas MacArthur.  This book is of personal interest as my wife’s grandma Gene was one of the internees at Los Baños.

  1. It’s a subject very dear to me, as my father was a member of the 11th Airborne Division and I am a member of the association. Over 2100 people from 26 miles behind enemy lines!!
