The Bataan peninsula, a strip of land 25 miles long and 20 miles wide, on the Philippine Island of Luzon became the last refuge for the troops defending the island against a Japanese invasion, December 1941. Over 67,500 Filipino soldiers and 12,500 US service personnel starved of adequate food and supplies rendered a desperate yet hopeless defense ultimately surrendering on April 9, 1942. Some 78,000 men were then herded out of the peninsula in what became known as the brutal Bataan Death March. The presentation will cover all aspects of the 4 month long battle and its impact on the history of WW II.
