One super movie!

EuSei Oct 26, 2012

Touching movie, especially since it is actually based on real facts: the horrific Baatan Death March. 76,000 prisoners (12,000 Americans, the remainder Filipinos) started the 60 mile gruesome journey that lasted 5 days. 5,200 Americans and 10,000 Fillipinos died along the way—bayoneted, shot, beheaded, left to die on the side of the road, starved or by the “sun treatment” (hours under the baking sun with no water). The 50,000 survivors, diseased and starved, lived 3 years in a concentration camp designed to hold 10,000 prisoners. Many died under the Japanese brutal treatment: 20,000 Filipinos and 1,600 Americans. A must watch. Teach your children true History: let them watch this movie and get more info here: http://www.bataansurvivor.com/content/march_of_time/1.php NOTICE: Attempts to censor (“Report this”) my comments will be fiercely fought under the aegis of American Libraries’ beloved principles: Freedom of Speech, Freedom to Read, Intellectual Freedom.
