Transcript of Bataan Death March Book Report Mrs. Ford

Bataan Death March: World War II Prisoners in the Pacific
Author: Robert Greenberger

Some Facts
The route they marched was about 100 miles long.
The march lasted 6 days!!
New Mexico has a annual death march to celebrate the survivors and commemorate the dead of Bataan.
The march included over 75,000 Filipinos and Americans.
Interestingly, some marchers on the death march survived by playing dead.
On May 30, 2009, at the sixty-fourth and final reunion of Bataan Death March survivors in San Antonio, Texas, Japanese ambassador to the United States Ichiro Fujisaki apologized to the assembled survivors for the Japanese treatment of Allied prisoners of war, on behalf of the Japanese government.
The Bataan Death march would not have happened if the Japanese would have been prepared for the large amount of prisoners.
To commemorate and honor the soldiers, Day Of Valor is held in the Philippines every April the ninth.
There is a shrine in Bataan that commemorates the dead. It is 92 Meters Tall.
Some men who refused to walk were hit by Japanese tanks.
Favorite Part

My favorite part of the book was when it was describing how they invaded Camp O' Donnell. They rushed into the camp and surprised the Japanese and won because the Japanese had little supplies for having to handle so many prisoners of war.

tantamount- virtually the same as
reprisals- an act of retaliation
aboriginal- native to that place
wallow- roll or lay down in
disinterred- dig up
Characters Adding
My topic affects people because it shows them how harsh the Bataan Death March really was. It uses the example of how the survivors looked after they were rescued to make their point.
Background Information
Bataan Death March POw IN the Pacific
The Bataan Death March or The Death March of Bataan was the march of captured American and Filipino troops from the Battle of Bataan in 1942. They were forced by the Japanese to walk from Mariveles at the southern tip of Bataan Peninsula to Camp O'Donnell. The route of the march measured about a hundred miles and it took six days for the surviving prisoners to reach the camp, with many dying along the way.
I really would recommend this to a type of person who likes to read books about topics on WWII. It is a really interesting book. They use a wide variety of words to get their point across to you. They include detailed descriptions of the pictures so that even if you were blind, someone could read the description to you and the picture would pop up in your head. They also organized the book in chronological order.
The author obviously knows a lot on this topic and makes
use of it to make the book interesting.
The video is different than my book because it describes exactly why we surrendered in Bataan. In my book it just said that we surrendered. My book includes how America beat the Japanese in Camp O' Donnell.
The video and my book are the same because they both include how harsh the march was. They both include that American and Filipinos were in the march also.
