Summary
The true story of three intrepid people who successfully eluded the Japanese in Manila for more than two years, sabotaging enemy efforts and preparing the way for MacArthur's return. One was a debonair polo-playing expatriate businessman who was also a U.S. Navy intelligence officer. Another was a defiant enlisted American soldier. And the third was a wily American woman, an intinerant torch singer with many names and almost as many husbands. With ample doses of intrigue, drama, skulduggery, sacrifice, and romance, this book has all the complicated heroism and villainy of the best war novels. But it is, in the end, a true tale of courage when it counted the most--
Summary
An assessment of the military strategies and espionage activities in occupied Manila during World War II traces how a daring Filipino and American team hid in the Luzon hills to prepare for MacArthur's return and sabotage Japanese efforts, including a planned invasion of Australia
