Rate this:
In late 1944, the Allies invaded the Japanese-held Philippines, and soon the end of the Pacific War was within reach. But for the last 150 American prisoners of war still held on the island of Palawan, there would be no salvation. As they were herded into air raid shelters, Japanese soldiers set them on fire. By the next morning, only eleven were left alive. As Good As Dead is one of the greatest escape stories of World War II, and one that few people know. Endurance, determination and courage in the face of death make this a gripping and inspiring saga of survival.
