More About Escape from Davao by John D. Lukacs
 
 
 
Overview
One of the greatest Pacific war stories never told.

On April 4, 1943, ten American prisoners of war and two Filipino convicts--nicknamed the "Davao Dozen"--executed a daring escape from one of Japan's most notorious prison camps. Called the "greatest story of the war in the Pacific" by the War Department in 1944, the full account has never been told--until now. A product of years of in-depth research, John D. Lukacs's gripping description of the escape brings this remarkable tale to life. In this remarkable contribution to the realm of WWII POW narrative, Lukacs describes the dramatic escape for a new generation to admire the resourcefulness and patriotism of the men who fought in the Pacific.

"Like the event it covers, Escape from Davao is unique. You are holding in your hands the story of the only successful American group escape from a Japanese camp." --James Bradley, author of Flags of Our Fathers
