"Tears in the Darkness"

"There are no winners in a war."


I sometimes listen to The Diane Rehm show while I'm exercising and today I checked out a program aired in June, that featured an interview with the husband and wife team , Michael and Elizabeth Norman, who wrote the just published book  "Tears in the Darkness," the story of of what happened to the 76,000 Phillipine and American troops who were forced to surrender to the Japanese in 1942 after a four-month war fought under the command of Douglas MacArthur.
