From the Author:

I hope that all of the readers enjoy this book as much as I enjoyed writing it.  It took me the better part of a year because of all the research that was involved, but it was a labor of love.  In the process of research, I read books by many people who were guerrillas in the Philippines, and I learned how giving and thankful the Filipinos were to have the Americans on their side.  They gave them food, shelter, and most of all, encouragement.  Many worked side by side with their allies.  Most of the coastwatchers, who made an incredible difference in the fight, were Filipinos.  They knew their islands and its inhabitants.  I even felt the emotions of the forming of the groups, the Manila Massacre, and the pride that every Filipino hopefully feels in their fellow countrymen for their fight and spirit.  Most of all, I hope the readers see what I saw.
