It details the Bataan Death March which started in 1942 after the Japanese Army captured the Bataan Peninsula in Luzon, Philippines. It marked the largest surrender in the history of the United States military, since the Revolutionary War, when 78,000 American and Filipino troops were captured as P.O.W.'s and began a 60 mile march towards Camp O'Donnell. It is estimated that roughly 10,000 soldiers did not survive the journey due to a number of reasons.
