Bataan Uncensored, published in 1949, is the first-hand account by U.S. Army Colonel Ernest Miller of his experiences in the battle for Bataan, his subsequent surrender and participation in the infamous "Death March," followed by imprisonment at Camps O'Donnell and Cabanatuan, and finally transfer to a labor camp in Japan on a cramped, fetid "Hell Ship." Upon their arrival in the Philippines, Miller, commander of an armored National Guard unit from Minnesota—the 194th Tank Battalion—and his troops are soon thrown into the thick of the fighting in a desperate attempt to slow the Japanese take-over. The U.S. And Philippine armies, grossly unprepared for the massive Japanese invasions, do not have a chance of victory, compounded by their obsolete equipment, lack of fuel and food, and a chaotic command structure. Once in captivity, the struggle to survive begins, hindered by always inadequate food, no medicines to treat raging diseases such as malaria and dysentery, and beatings at the hands of sadistic guards. As the author states, by war's end, 75% of his battalion did not return to the United States. Unlike other works dealing with the U.S. military in the Philippines in the Second World War, Bataan Uncensored realistically portrays the experiences of the soldiers but also identifies critical weaknesses in American policy and tactics that greatly affected the outcome of the battle. Included are 11 pages of maps.
