Jimmy Propfield joined the army for two reasons: to get out of Mobile, Alabama, with his best friends Hank and Billy and to forget his high school sweetheart, Claire.
Life in the Philippines seems like paradise—until the morning of December 8, 1941, when news comes from Manila: the Japanese have bombed Pearl Harbor. Within hours, the teenage friends are plunged into war as Japanese warplanes attack Luzon, beginning a battle for control of the Pacific Theater that will culminate with a last stand on the Bataan Peninsula and end with the largest surrender of American troops in history.
What follows will become known as one of the worst atrocities in modern warfare: the Bataan Death March. With no hope of rescue, the three friends vow to make it back home together. But the ordeal is only the beginning of their nearly four-year fight to survive.
Inspired by true stories, The Long March Home is a gripping coming-of-age tale of friendship, sacrifice, and the power of unrelenting hope.

Would love to read this book. Such an interesting and horrifical piece of history I’d like to read more about.
Thank you so much, Denise. It was interesting–and horrific, as you noted–to research. I hope you’ll read it. 🙂
I find the history of Pearl Harbor interesting as my Dad was in the Navy, although not at Pearl Harbor.
I was just there last summer, JoAnne, and went to the Memorial and also the USS Missouri, where there were several displays about the Philippines and what went on there as well. So much to absorb.
I am fascinated to learn all I can about WWII. My dad was in the Navy and served in the Pacific after the attack on Pearl Harbor. I hope to visit Hawaii and the Memorial one day.
