In The Times When Men Must Die, Marconi Dioso revisits Bataan and Corregidor and revives the questions that until now most historians and self-proclaimed experts have grappled with themselves: Why did Japanese military reinforcements arrive to finally allow Homma to bring the Philippines to its knees, while Washington set its military priorities elsewhere, in the process leaving Filipino and American soldiers helpless on the islands? From the standpoint of the battlefields and their combatants, the citizens of the Phillippines and the United States should gain a lasting insight into the racial divide between these two nations as they struggled to fight a common enemy.

The Times When Men Must Die offers Dioso's take on these questions, while chronicling the military tactical maneuvers and exchanges, logistics situation, training, alternating between gruesome anecdotes and those rare, light, humorous moments in the lives of the participants. It combines solid research and dreamlike writing from the standpoint of the battlefields and their combatants.
