Volume 28, Issue 5

BATAAN: THE JUDGMENT SEAT. By Lieutenant Colonel Allison Ind. New York: The Macmillan Company. 395 pp. $3.50.

LIEUTENANT COLONEL ALLISON IND gives his own personal account of the tragedy of Bataan in Bataan: The Judgment Seat. However, the tragedy did not begin on December 7, 1941. It began years before when the United States was blind to the fact that some day we should have to defend the Philippines against the Japanese, and in this blindness refused to strengthen ourselves sufficiently to meet the inevitable onslaught.
