Synopsis: Only hours after bombs fell on Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941, the Philippine Islands were attacked by Japan. Living on the islands at that time was youngster Curtis Tong; his two sisters, Eloise and Annarae; and his parents, Walter and Margaret, American missionaries posted in the Philippines. A forced march to Camp John Hay in Baguio with five hundred other American and British prisoners of war introduced this family to a new life of fear and starvation.

Author Curtis Tong vividly recalls his three years as a child prisoner of the Japanese Imperial Army. His father was imprisoned far from his family in Davao, Mindanao for a long stretch of internment. Curtis was further isolated from his mother and sisters, relegated to the men's barracks. His family's difficult journey through several concentration camps and prisons not only exposed Curtis to the sights and sounds of anger, hatred and torture, but also taught him the truths of abiding love.

A fascinating view of war from a child's perspective, Child of War: Son of Angels is a story of adventure, fear and hunger -and hope, love and gratitude to have survived the unthinkable.
