Description
In January 1945, troops from the elite U.S. Sixth Ranger Battalion slipped behind enemy lines in the Philippines. Their mission: attempt to rescue American and British POWs who had spent three years in a hellish camp near the city of Cabanatuan. As the Rangers moved through enemy territory, they learned that Cabanatuan had become a major point for the Japanese retreat. Instead of facing the few dozen prison guards, they could possibly confront as many as 8,000 enemy troops.
