Abstract

"As Pearl Harbor was being bombed on December 7, 1941, the Japanese Imperial Army was invading the Philippines, and 16-year-old American-Filipino student Dorothy Dore's life became a nightmare." "As recounted in this moving memoir, Dorothy spent the war years on the run as a medical aide in the jungles of Mindanao, working for U.S. forces as a teenage second lieutenant - while protecting her father and mother until their deaths, relentlessly pursued by Japanese soldiers. She married a young American officer and within less than a year, in a horrifying moment of betrayal, saw him murdered before her eyes."--Jacket.
