Description - But Deliver Us from Evil, Father Duffy and the Men of Bataan by Dan Murr

But Deliver Us from Evil, Father Duffy and the Men of Bataan is an attempt to reveal the pain and suffering Colonel John E. Duffy, a U.S. Army chaplain of the Catholic faith, endured from 9 April 1942 until his death on 4 June 1958. When Bataan and 70,000 American and Filipino troops were surrendered to the Japanese, Father Duffy was among those captured. He died at Letterman Hospital, The Presidio, San Francisco, CA of cancer and was buried there at the national cemetery on a hill overlooking San Francisco Bay. With him went the true story of his and his fellow prisoners of war ordeal. He was wounded six times, bayoneted and left for dead on the Bataan Death March but was rescued by Filipino Guerillas. He was betrayed and recaptured, survived the bombing and strafing by U.S. planes that sunk two Japanese Hellships loaded with U.S. POWs, a lack of food and water, torture by his captors and illness but still carried out his chaplain's duties. He was truly one of the little-known heroes of World War II.
