Through interviews with survivors and through unpublished letters, diaries, and journals, Elizabeth M. Norman vividly re-creates that time, telling the story in richly drawn portraits and in a dramatic narrative delivered in the voices of the women who were there.

A very moving tribute!
I'm 62 and retired from the Air Force. In the 70's I spent a total of 3 years at Clark AB. This book moved me to tears several times as my mind related to the past. Every year in New Mexico there is an event called The Bataan Memorial Death March. A 26 mile march that I have participated in the past 5 years. This year at mile 16, I suffered a heart attack. My life was saved by 6 Army nurses who were a few steps behind me. As my eyes well up, I cannot help but think of the correlation between my angels and the Angels of Bataan..

A fascinating untold story
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
I have read this book several times and would recommend it for all Americans! It is a must read/listen. You don't have to be interested in World War II to savor this book. This is an amazing tale of nurses who thought they were traveling to paradise and ended up in a horrific war zone,and eventually, as prisoners of the Japanese in the Philippines.
What was one of the most memorable moments of We Band of Angels?
The stories of the nurses surviving as prisoners of war when they were completely unprepared to be in a combat zone are so inspiring.
Any additional comments?
This book is so interesting and reveals so much about the "angels" who are the heroines of this story.
