Episode Summary

EDIT
Raid On Bataan Death Camp
AIRED:
December 8th, 1942. With the American fleet still smoldering in Pearl Harbor, the Japanese unleash their war machine on the Philippines. Thousands of American GIs and their Filipino allies beat a fighting retreat onto the jungle-infested Bataan Peninsula with the Imperial Army in hot pursuit. Surrounded, and cut off from reinforcements, the American-led force finally surrenders, only to be subjected to the horrors of the Bataan Death March. Many of the survivors of the march are imprisoned at the Cabanatuan death camp. Fast forward. January 30th, 1945. After three hellish years, the American military makes a triumphant return to the shores of the Philippines. The elite Army Rangers are sent on a secret mission to liberate 500 Allied prisoners still languishing behind the barbed wire of Cabanatuan. Captain Bob Prince and Lt. Robert Andersen were there, and they take us shot-by-shot through one of the most daring lightning raids in history.moreless
