On January 2, 1942, Japanese troops marched into Manila unopposed by US forces commanded by General Douglas MacArthur. Thousands of soldiers surrendered and sent on the notorious Bataan Death March to 80 miles to a prison camp. But thousands of other Filipinos and Americans refused to surrender and hid in the Luzon hills above Bataan and Manila. This is the story of three of them, and how they successfully foiled the Japanese for more than two years, sabotaging Japanese efforts and preparing the way for MacArthur's return.

Interesting WWII spy stories in the Philippines, but MacArthur appears in name only - he had almost nothing to do with the spies in the Philippines and deserves no credit for their efforts.
