Title: Back to Bataan, April, 1942

Description: Following the surrender of Bataan, American and Filipino prisoners of war begin their march, in groups of 500 to 1,000 men, from Mariveles airfield on Bataan to the prison camp at San Fernando, in Pampanga Province, a distance of 100 miles, denied water and food, beaten along the way; prisoners who fell from weakness, wounds, dehydration, or sunstroke, were bayoneted to death by savage Japanese guards; those found with Japanese money or tokens were beheaded and thousands died from thirst, starvation and abuse en route along the infamous Bataan "Death March" the prisoners in this photo carry wounded comrades in makeshift litters as Japanese guards refused them the use of any stretchers; xenophobic Japanese troops had been taught to believe that all foreigners were inferior and those who surrendered were without honor and deserving of execution without recourse; General Masaharu Homma, the overall commander of Japanese forces on Luzon was later convicted of war crimes for many atrocities in the Philippines, including the Bataan "Death March," and executed by a firing squad outside of Manila, on April 3, 1946; the Bataan Death March was profiled in part in the 1945 film Back to Bataan, and in whole in the made-for-TV 2000 documentary The Bataan Death March, the made-for-video 2001 film Bataan Death March, and in the 2008 Australian documentary Death March of Bataan;
