Bataan Death March

What i love about history is that it serves well as a lesson to humanity. I have read many times before about Bataan Death March and i am so excited to get a copy of this book written by two authors.

“Tears in the Darkness: The Story of the Bataan Death March and its Aftermath” is said to be worked on for ten years by Michael Norman and Elizabeth Norman and includes interviews with survivors of the Bataan Death March from the Philippines and the United States as well as soldiers from Japan.

The book was launched at the Library of Congress last July 10, 2009.

Me and a couple other soldiers from my unit are marching in this in a couple of weeks. The GREEN route is the full 26.2 mile Bataan Memorial Death March. (There is a shorter "blue" route) Those marching the 26.2 miles will be able to experience, in part, what the Soldiers endured during their long trek through the Philippines.

If youre not familiar with what the Bataan Death march was here is some background: bataan death march
