Wonderful story of the hardships of World War Two
This is a gripping story of a captured Nurse working during World War Two in the Pacific.
It is told through letters and captured with beauty and sensitivity by the Narrator.
Anyone who wishes to have a glimpse of the sacrifices of so many men and women during the War will appreciate this story.
This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

WWII Nursing POW Memoir
The Angels of Bataan were nearly 70 Army nurses stationed in Manilla during the war. When the Philippines fell, the nurses were held as POWs for three years by the Japanese. The story revealed the experiences and hardships as a POW and the difficulties practicing nursing under these conditions. It was told through the letters to and from Marcia Gates and her anxious friends and family as well as official correspondence from the War Department and the Red Cross. After release, the nurses were called heroes but felt they had just done their jobs and had survived. They felt discontent with all the attention and never understood why they were called heroes. Marcia never recovered from her hardships and suffered discontent the rest of her life. I enjoyed this memoir of the service of Marcia Gates in the pacific during WWII..
