TEARS IN THE DARKNESS The Story of the Bataan Death March and Its Aftermath

by | Read by Michael Prichard

History • 16.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2009

The Japanese attacked U.S. bases in the Philippine Islands on December 7, 1941, the same day as the Pearl Harbor raid. The poorly trained American and Philippine troops retreated to the close-by peninsula of Bataan, eventually surrendering to the Japanese. Hell began for these soldiers on a sixty-mile march to a prison camp and, for those who survived it, continued during their next three years of internment. Narrator Michael Prichard has a way of sounding authentic with foreign languages simply by sounding so sure of himself. He does this with the abundant Japanese names and places herein without trying to imitate a native speaker or create characters. Prichard's serious presence fades into the background as the authors' tales of brutality, disease, starvation, and death take the spotlight.
