Wally Thomas didn t know how many days and nights he had been marching up the
coast of the Bataan Peninsula. He was almost too numb to think, too full
of pain. He tried to keep a steady pace, but the guards pressured the
prisoners to keep moving, forced them close together, and in their exhaustion
the men stumbled and knocked each other off stride. When that happened,
the extra effort was almost overwhelming; there were times when Wally though he
would go down - and not get up - the way so many other prisoners had already
With each day getting worse in the Bataan death march, Wally could die of
hunger, exposure, or even violence. Will his growing faith be enough to
pull him through?
Bobbi, now a nurse in the navy, meets a handsome young officer. She s
not sure how she feels about him, however, or whether he feels anything at all
Alex is in training as a paratrooper, but can he stick it out? And even
if he can, how can he bring himself to fight the German people, whom he learned
to love on his mission?
Even young Gene knows he ll be joining the service, but he wonders what kind
of a soldier he ll make.
