About this title

Synopsis:

In 100 Miles to Freedom, U.S. Marine Bob Holland tells the story of the release of 3,700 American civilian prisoners of the Japanese at Santo Tomas University Internment Camp in Manila, the Philippines. Until their miraculous rescue on February 3, 1945, these civilians had been interned for more than three and a half years. This wartime account is complete with interviews of several prisoners describing their experiences and hardships in the camp, as well as black-and-white photos depicting Marines and prisoners during this tumultuous event in history. Discover why Brigadier General Robert E. Galer says that through this book, we can know and better appreciate what our proud and dedicated generation of true Americans did for our country.
