Abstract:
Caption on back of photograph reads: "EXHAUSTED U.S. SERGEANT SLEEPS AFTER BEING RESCUED FROM JAPANESE PRISON CAMP. One of the 486 Americans freed from the Cabanatuan prison camp on Luzon, largest Philippine island, fell asleep immediately upon his arrival at a U.S. Army evacuation hospital. On January 30, 1945, U.S. Rangers and Filipino guerrillas raided the Japanese camp situated 25 miles (40 km.) behind enemy lines. The enemy lost 523 troops and 12 tanks in a futile attempt to prevent the rescue. The rescuers suffered only 27 casualties. In addition to the U.S. war prisoners liberated, 23 Britons, three Netherlanders and one Norwegian were taken from Cabanatuan."
