About this title


"SURVIVOR" is a dynamic and emotional account of one of the most tragic periods in American history. Told through the eyes and soul of Frank Lovato to his son, Francisco Lovato, a retired psychotherapist, the story leaps from tears to cheers as Frank and his buddies survive the travails of being a formidable combatant and subsequently a POW of the Japanese in WWII. Amazingly, Frank, two other Americans and 25 Filipino troops were the first to engage the invading Imperial Japanese forces of General Masaharu Homma on the beaches of Northern Lingayen Bay on December 22, 1941. This fact, virtually lost to the history books, tells of how MacArthur had positioned most of his forces over 45 miles away from where the 44,000 Japanese actually landed. Frank's 4 half track battery, equipped with 75-mm cannons sunk approximately 30 Japanese landing craft before pulling off the beach as Japanese troops, who had landed farther northward attempted to surround them. REVIEWS "SURVIVOR" is many things at once-a warrior's story; and epic of endurance and survival; an insider's account of the Bataan tragedy; and above all an act of filial fealty by Francisco Lovato who has established in this narrative his father's rightful place as an authentic American hero." Peter Collier- NY Times Bestselling biographer-Kennedy's, Rockefellers,Fords,Roosevelts "In this feelingly told biography, Lovato and his son honor that most essential imperative of all wars-which is simply to remember, no matter how painful the memories may be. SURVIVOR is a vivid memoir of resilience, sacrifice, and courage." Hampton Sides -Author of Ghost Soldiers
