About this title


A compelling true life saga of the trials, tribulations and triumphs of James T. Murphy, who was taken captive by Japanese Imperial Forces on April 9, 1942 in the Philippine Islands, just four months after the outbreak of World War II. This is a story that transcends generations and gender. Follow Murphy's remarkable journey, consider the tragedies and triumphs -- and let them serve as both a caution to societies and an inspiration to individuals. Reawaken your faith in life and in humanity - from the vantage point of one man who defied the U.S. Secretary of War's dark prediction of his fate in early 1942 when that high-ranking government official declared : "There are times when men must die."
