Sintesi dell'editore

Before General MacArthur could fulfill his stirring promise of "I shall return" and retake the Philippines from Japanese control, a remarkable rescue mission would have to take place. Captured American soldiers, emaciated and ill from brutal mistreatment, were still being held at the notorious Cabanatuan prison camp. A small band of Army Rangers set out on a daring rescue effort: to penetrate thirty miles into Japanese-controlled territory, storm the camp, and escape with the POWs, carrying them if necessary.

Breuer recounts in searing, meticulous detail the full story of this thrilling true-life adventure and inspiring testament to American heroism and grit.

©1994 William B. Breuer (P)2005 Blackstone Audiobooks

"An exciting narrative presented by a first-rate storyteller." (Publishers Weekly) "The book's great virtue is that it allows a number of the rapidly diminishing band of survivors of the whole experience to have their say." (Booklist)

A Great Story

The quality of the narration and the gripping nature of the story of the rescue of several hundred American POW's made this one of the best audible books I've listened to in the last few years. Higly, highly recommended for WWII buffs as well as for those who like an adventure.

A story which must not be forgotten!

I downloaded this book after viewing a documentary about the raid on Cabanatuan. The movie left me wanting more detail, and this title wonderfully provided it. The story of Bataan and the eventual rescue is rivetting. Patrick Lawlor is an excellent narrator for this type of story. Listen!!!! This one's a winner!!!!

OK for WWII fans

I read this after reading Ghost Soldiers, one of the best WWII books I have read, so it was kind of a let down. It did give a different perspective on Raid. Ghost Solders was more about the raid itself, where this book talked more about the camp and the under ground that help the prisoners.

The Other Side Of "I Shall Return"

This is an amazing story. I particularly enjoyed the parts about the Filipino Resistance to the occupation and their efforts to help the POW's at great cost and personal risk. Heroism abounds...

Learned so much and was captivated by the story.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, because there's so much that is untaught in US schools about the liberation of the Philippines in WW2. Was amazing to hear about everything that happened. Was shocked that I learned nothing of it until now. I'm so happy that I randomly decided to listen to this audio book.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

I shall return!

must read for WWII buffs

somewhat miss titled, but the title is the reason I bought the book. You get much more than just the raid. You get the whole history from the fall of the Philippians and then the reoccupation by US forces. You don't get to the raid until 3/4 into the book ... that's a good thing.

Wow!! Very powerful!!!

Please read this book!!! This is a must read!!! It took me two days to get through this book and that's because I had school and evidently had to sleep.. I had no idea about such horrors in the Pacific and the sacrifice and courage that the Alamo Scouts, ranger 6th and guerrilla Philippino fighters exhibited in rescuing the POW's Cabanatuan is something stellar. Gripping story and a MUST read!!!
