The Japanese Occupation of the Philippines. Volume I

By Hartendorp, A. V. H

Manila, Philippines: Bookmark. Hardcover. B0070U100C Signed, without inscription, by author upon title page. Also signed and inscribed by author upon front free endpaper. xvi, 662 pages. Black and white reproductions of archival photos. "Except for the last few chapters, this entire work was written from day to day during the three years of the author's internment in Santo Tomas and is therefore to be considered as a prison document. The writing of any such record as this was forbidden by the Japanese under strong menace. In the end they destroyed their own records and those of the successive internee executive committees, but the author's voluminous typescript, carefully hidden away, was never found by them. Every story is based on interviews with numerous persons who participated in the events they talked about." - Foreword. No dust jacket. Unmarked with somewhat above-average wear to grey boards. Binding intact. Please note that we are offering volume one only of this important two volume chronicle. . Good. 1967. First Edition.
