Last Stand on Bataan: The Defense of the Philippines, December 1941-May 1942 by Christopher L. Kolakowski is a fascinating, detailed book. The book covers the fight General McArthur fought in 1941-1942 against the Japanese invaders to the Philippines.
The book includes quotes from participants, maps, photographs and extensive notes. The author spent a lot of time researching and it shows, he put together a historical artifact in a concise manner.
This is an academic book, the reader will be able to follow the battle each day and each step. The author tries, and my view succeeded, to stay balanced in his observations and writings.
