More About Rescue at Los Banos by Bruce Henderson
 
 
 
Overview

Rescue at Los Banos is the spellbinding survival story of more than two thousand American and Allied civilian prisoners of war men, women, and children held in the Philippines by the Japanese during World War II, and the elite 11th Airborne Division s heart-pounding mission in a race against the clock to rescue them from behind enemy lines

As U.S. victory in the Pacific drew near, Japanese soldiers at the Los Banos Internment Camp became increasingly sadistic and began systematically starving, beating, and killing their captives. Fearing the loss of more innocent lives, General Douglas MacArthur gave the 11th Airborne Division the dangerous mission of freeing these beleaguered men, women, and children in a deadly race against the clock. Rescue at Los Banos deftly weaves together dramatic accounts of the prison camp with detailed analysis of the complex military operation being planned and carried out, documenting the incredible story of the prisoners and those who risked their lives to save them."
