Earl Anderson was an ordinary Navy sailor placed under extraordinary circumstances. He narrowly avoided death when the invading Japanese army on the Bataan peninsula overwhelmed the besieged American forces. He fought alongside the Marines on the fortress-island of Corregidor, where American forces made their courageous last stand against the relentless Japanese invaders. After a brutal fight on Corregidor, he was captured and became a POW for three and a half years. Earl Anderson used extraordinary willpower, ingenuity, and teamwork to survive starvation and systematic abuse in the infamous POW Camp Cabanatuan in the Philippines. He and his buddies continued their shared fight for survival when they were transferred by a Japanese hell-ship to Yokohama, Japan, where they were forced to work as slave labor in a shipyard. While POWs were dying all around them, Earl Anderson and his buddies never gave up and never surrendered. Willpower, teamwork, innovation, and luck enabled them to survive many life-threatening challenges in the deadly camps-and ultimately to endure the apocalyptic bombing raids on Yokohama and Tokyo.
