5.0 out of 5 stars The limit of human endurance and of survival is told here., 26 Sep 1996
By A Customer
This review is from: My Hitch in Hell: The Bataan Death March (World War II Commemorative) (Hardcover)
An uncompromising story of the war in the Philippines, the drama of the fighting on Bataan, and the dreams, goals and anguish of a survivor of the Infamous Bataan Death March.

The survivors returned with their heads hung low, and arrived back into the United States quietly, anonymously, without any fanfare or banners waving to welcome them home.
There were no acknowledgments of any kind for these brave survivors of a vicious enemy.

This is a first person account of horror, survival and dreams of one young soldier. This is not a racorous book, but it is not a pleasant story. It's a realistic story of man's
fight for survival while keeping his ideals intact.

Tenney's searing wartime experiences of the past and his gracious acceptance of the young Japanese of the present, bring a unique perspective to the current debates over Japan's
wartime culpability, the morality of the atomic bombs, and American-Japanese relations today.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sadness and Triumph -- Personal, 7 Sep 1997
By A Customer
This review is from: My Hitch in Hell: The Bataan Death March (World War II Commemorative) (Hardcover)
This book is at the top of my favorite's list of "personal narratives" of the appalling treatment of American and Filipino POWs by the Japanese. Lester Tenney is a true product of his time; depression-era, pre-war America. How fate casts him into the hands of the US Army and his Japanese captors is fascinating. Tenney does a fine job keeping his story factual but letting the emotions seep through.
One of many such tales, but a good one.
