What a Way to Spend a War: Navy Nurse POWs in the Philippines

NonfictionLarge Print EditionBy the time Corregidor fell in 1942, prisoners of the Japanese in Manila included eleven U.S. Navy nurses. They endured deprivation of even basic necessities and lived in constant fear for their lives. On the day of their scheduled execution February 23, 1945 they were rescued by the Eleventh Airborne Division. Once back in the states, the former POWs had a new set of problems to cope with. They missed the camaraderie they had come to depend on; old friends and family seemed like strangers; postwar depression had set in. But Danner painstakingly rebuilt her life, and much later, she rediscovered the man she had loved as a POW. Heres a fascinating look at a young womans development under extraordinary circumstances.
