We Refused to Die: My time as a prisoner of war in Bataan and Japan, 1942-1945 (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

By Jacobsen, Gene S.

Gene Jacobsen was a nineteen-year-old Idaho ranch kid when he decided to join the Army Air Corps in September 1940. By December 1941 he was supply sergeant for the Twentieth Pursuit Squadron at Clark Field in the Philippines. Five months later he was a captive of the Imperial Jap...anese Army, enduring the Bataan death march and subsequent horrors in the Philippines and Japan. Of the 207 officers and men who made up Jacobsen's squadron at the beginning of the war, sixty-five survived to return to the United States. We Refused to Die recounts Jacobsen's struggle, against all odds, to remain one of those sixty-five men. In engaging, direct prose, Jacobsen's three-and-a-half year experience as a prisoner of war takes the reader on a brutal and harrowing march through hatred and forgiveness, fortitude and freedom. We Refused to Die is an honest memoir that shines light on one of history's darkest moments.
