The use of American Prisoners of War (POW) as slave labor by the Japanese is a story that has been left untold in most history books and is unknown by many today. Ninety percent of the POWs who perished in World War II died in Japanese prison camps. In these pages, Andy Andrews tells his personal story of three and a half years of captivity as a Japanese POW. He talks about brave U.S. soldiers who were used as slave labor for Japanese Corporations, survived starvation, torture and extreme Japanese brutality. While in captivity he survived 19 days in the hull of the Japanese hell ship Nagata Maru, Cabanatuan Prison camp, various prison camps in Osaka & Tsuruga, starvation, torture and countless acts of brutality by the Japanese. While in the camps, he and his fellow POWs risked their lives to engage in sabotage to defuse bombs, disable military components, and disrupt cargo shipments. The number of lives saved by the diffused bombs, disrupted shipments and other similar acts will never be known, but their bravery and fortitude will be, through this book. So, we invite you to take this journey with us and experience a time and events that are seldom discussed or documented, see them as an American soldier saw them and you too will be amazed at the bravery, loyalty and mettle of American soldiers. Andy Andrews was awarded with numerous commendations and citations including: the Bronze Star, the POW medal, Presidential Citation With Two Oak Leaf Clusters, the Philippine Defense Medal with 3 battle stars, the American Defense Medal with 3 Battle Stars, Asiatic/Pacific Theater medal with 2 battle stars, Good Conduct Medal, Philippine Presidential Unit Citation and the Combat Action Ribbon.
