Escape From Corregidor by Edgar D. Whitcomb

From a commentator on Amazon .... This was an incredible story of a B-17 navigator stationed in the Philippines in December of 1941. He was at Clark Field in the Philippines, and he was there again when the war ended, and his amazing story of capture, escape, surrender, escape again, attempting to sail to China,attempting to sail to Australia, capture again, and his unlikely route back to the U.S. to eventually return to the Pacific for the last three months of the war is a great human interest and great history of the war story. I had always faulted McArthur for the loss of the air forces in the Philippines the day after Pearl Harbor, and this man tells his story of being there when the Japanese bombed it! A great read, well written, and what a story!
