"As Good As Dead" by Stephen L Moore is a nonfiction work about the POW camps in the Philippines during World War II. Close to 400 Americans were held prisoner on the Palawan Island, being starved and tortured. The majority of the book stays with the POWs on the island telling of the horrors the men endured while there. Climaxing when the last 150 men still there were massacred. With only 11 left, the men escaped and were on a mission for survival.
This is a brilliantly written book. Very well researched. It is not a book that one would read for hours strait at a time. It can be quiet difficult to read, actually. However, it is an important book that should be read by all. I received this book in exchange for an honest review from www.firsttoread.com.
