  • "A narration of the 1945 march to rescue 513 POWs, including the last survivors of the Bataan Death March, from a prison in the Philippines."
  • "In January 1945, 121 hand-selected troops from the U.S. Army Sixth Ranger Battalion slipped behind enemy lines in the Philippines to attempt rescue of 513 American and British POWs who had spent over three years in a camp near the city of Cabantuan. Cabanatuan had become a major transshipment point for the Japanese retreat, and instead of facing a few dozen prison guards, they would possibly confront as many as 8,000 enemy troops. Hampton Sides explores the mystery of human behavior under extreme duress."
  • "In 1945, 121 U.S. Army Rangers raided the Cabanatuan prisoner of war camp in the Philippines to rescue long-suffering soldiers. Depicts the atrocities of war, the conditions endured by the prisoners, and the bravery of the liberators."

  • "On January 28, 1945, 121 hand-selected troops from the elite U.S. 6th Ranger Battalion slipped behind enemy lines in the Philippines. Their mission: march thirty miles in an attempt to rescue 513 American and British POWs who had spent three years in a hellish camp near the city of Cabanatuan. The prisoners included the last survivors of the Bataan Death March left in the camp, and their extraordinary will to live might soon count for nothing. As the Rangers stealthily moved through enemy-occupied territory, they learned that Cabanatuan had become a major transshipment point for the Japanese retreat, and instead of facing the few dozen prison guards, they could possibly confront as many as 8,000 battle-hardened enemy troops."@en
