On the same day as the devastating attack on Pearl Harbor, the Japanese - without warning -bombed another American territory in the Pacific - the Philippines. While the U. S. Army and Navy recovered from the attack on Hawaii, Americans and Filipinos united their armed forces against invading Japanese. In They Called Themselves The Battling Bastards Of Bataan the little known but important story of the six-month struggle mounted by General Douglas MacArthur's forces against a bigger and better equipped Japanese army is told with full color illustration. The Philippines was America's first land battleground of World War II. With dedication and bravery, and no help from Washington, the "Bastards" dealt a serious blow to Japanese imperialism in the first months of the war.
