About this title


This is the story of how a people with hardly any military preparation fought to unshackle themselves from the Spanish yoke. It relates how they made the Americans pay dearly for virtually every inch of ground they yielded, not because they were well-armed, well-fed and well-trained, for they never were, but because of their effective common sense tactics and strategy, and their unflinching willingness to die for the country. Here, the savagery of the Philippine-American War is told -- the sadistic torture methods, the oppressive hamletting of inhabitants like canned sardines for weeks or even months on end, and the gruesome Balinggiga massacre. Also narrated is the Filipino and American forces' retreat to and valiant stand in, Bataan, where due to hunger and isease they suffered quite a lot more casualties than they did in combat. This book relates the way the Armed Forces have been addressing the communist insurgency and the Muslim separatist movement. It gives an account of the rise and fall of the Marcos regime, the EDSA Revolution and the RAM's emergence, and theorizes that the Americans have had a hand in all these. Likewise, it details the coup attempts against the Corazon Aquino government which failed, thanks to the AFP.
