Cabanatuan’s First Escape

Four young American POWs attempted to escape from the Cabanatuan POW Camp.


After being caught, they endured brutal punishment, forced to dig their graves, and executed by firing squad.


But, by war’s end, their burial location couldn’t be found. Would their remains ever be located, and would their murderer be brought to justice?



I mentioned the following episodes in today’s episode:

#53 – Attacks on Manila Bay’s harbor defense forts

#55 – March to Cabanatuan
