General Wainwright's Story

By General Jonathan M. Wainwright
Doubleday, 1946
314 pp. $3.00

This is General Wainwright's "account of four years of humiliating defeat, surrender, and captivity." It is a model of brevity, clarity and humanity. Despite the indignities and cruelties suffered by him and his men, he is without bitterness toward either the Japanese or his own people, on whom after all must rest the responsibility for Bataan, Corregidor and the awful years of captivity. Robert Considine edited the book.
