About this title


Rafael "Liling" Roces was beheaded by the Japanese militia in August of 1944. As the mastermind of the Resistance Movement known as Free Philippines, Roces paid the supreme patriotic sacrifice, for which he was posthumously awarded the US Medal of Freedom. Now, he is a vanished name. Inevitably, the natures of memory and heroism become the leitmotif of this extensively researched biography. Here is the saga of a Filipino family; from the first Roces to set foot in the Philippines--as alferez in the Governor General's elit guards, the "Alabarderos del Virrey,"--and on through four generation down to Liling's eight younger brothers. This moving, intimate tale, painted with the broad brush of history, it told by youngest brother Alfredo, a writer-painter now based in Sydney, Australia. A product of years of research, it is a refreshingly original attempt at a century of Philippine history through the heartbeat of one family.
