No Uncle Sam: The Forgotten of Bataan

Synopsis

"Anton Bilek was only twenty-two years old when he was captured in Bataan. No Uncle Sam is his story of survival through the Death March, his imprisonment under horrific conditions in the Philippines and Japan, and his servitude as a slave laborer in the Japanese coal mines. Bilek relates the frustration, anger, fear, humor, hope, and courage that he and the other prisoners shared during their captivity and their silence about these experiences for many years after their release from the POW camps. After almost 40 years, Bilek decided to write about his experiences, and this memoir is the result." Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc. All Rights Reserved
