"On April 9, 1942, thousands of U.S. soldiers surrendered as the Philippines island of Luzon fell to the Japanese. A few hundred Americans placed their faith in their own hands and headed for the jungles... one of them was Clay Conner Jr. -- a twenty-three year-old Army Air Force communications officer who had never even camped before... Connor showed himself to be a man of iron will, unbridled boldness, and endless perseverance. Inspired by an unlikely alliance with a tribe of arrow-shooting pygmy Negritos, by the words in a dog-eared New Testament, and by a tattered American flag that he vowed to someday ... fly at battalion headquarters, Connor would survive and fight for almost three years"--Dust jacket.
