Tears in the darkness : the story of the Bataan Death March and its aftermath by Michael Norman( Book )

Following the U.S. surrender to the Japanese on the peninsula of Bataan in 1942, 76,000 American and Filipino POWs began the infamous Death March. This gripping narrative, told in unsparing but sympathetic detail, focuses intermittently on American POW Ben Steele, whose sketches adorn the book, and the hell of Japanese prison and labor camps that introduced these captives to the starvation, dehydration and murderous Japanese brutality that would become routine for the next three years

The Story of fifty military nurses who served in Vietnam
Tears in the darkness : the story of the Bataan Death March and its aftermath by Michael Norman( Recording )

16 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 502 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For the first four months of 1942, U.S., Filipino, and Japanese soldiers fought what was America's first major land battle of World War II, the battle for the tiny Philippine peninsula of Bataan. It ended with the surrender of 76,000 Filipinos and Americans, the single largest defeat in American military history. The defeat, though, was only the beginning, as Michael and Elizabeth M. Norman make dramatically clear in this powerfully original book. From then until the Japanese surrendered in August 1945, the prisoners of war suffered an ordeal of unparalleled cruelty and savagery: forty-one months of captivity, starvation rations, dehydration, hard labor, deadly disease, and torture-far from the machinations of General Douglas MacArthur. The Normans bring to the story remarkable feats of reportage and literary empathy. Their protagonist, Ben Steele, is a figure out of Hemingway: a young cowboy turned sketch artist from Montana who joined the army to see the world. Juxtaposed against Steele's story and the sobering tale of the Death March and its aftermath is the story of a number of Japanese soldiers. The result is an altogether new and original World War II book: it exposes the myths of military heroism as shallow and inadequate; and it makes clear, with great literary and human power, that war causes suffering for people on all sides
We band of angels : the untold story of the American women trapped on Bataan by Elizabeth M Norman( Book )

5 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and held by 126 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the winter of 1941, as Japanese bombs began to fall on Luzon, American Army and Navy nurses stationed in the Philippines suddenly found themselves caught in a fiery hell of war. Undaunted, they did everything in their power to aid the soldiers, setting up much needed field hospitals in the jungles of Bataan and the tunnels of Corregidor, where they tended to the most devastating injuries of war amidst the raining shells and shrapnel. But the worst was still to come: As Bataan and Corregidor fell, ninety-nine of the nurses were herded into internment camps, where they endured three years of suffering, brutality, and starvation. Here, in letters, diaries, and firsthand accounts, is the story of what really happened during those dark days, woven together into a compelling saga of women in war"--

We band of angels : [the untold story of American nurses trapped on Bataan by the Japanese] by Elizabeth M Norman( Recording )

4 editions published between 2002 and 2014 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We Band of Angels is the story of women searching for adventure, caught up in the drama and danger of war. On the same day the Japanese Imperial Navy launched its surprise attack on Pearl Harbor in Hawaii, it also struck American bases in the Far East, chief among them the Philippines. That raid led to the first major land battle for America in World War II and, in the end, to the largest defeat and surrender of American forces. Caught up in all of this were 99 Army and Navy nurses--the first unit of American women ever sent into the middle of a battle. The "Angels of Bataan and Corregidor"--As the newspapers called them--became the only group of American women captured and imprisoned by an enemy. And the story of their trials on a bloody battlefield, their desperate flight to avoid capture and their ultimate surrender, imprisonment, liberation and homecoming is a story of endurance, professionalism and raw pluck. Along the way, they helped build and staff hospitals in the middle of a malaria-infested jungle on the peninsula of Bataan. Then, short of supplies and medicine, they worked around the clock in the operating rooms and open-air wards, dealing with gaping wounds and gangrenous limbs, ministering to the wounded, the sick, the dying. A few fell in love, only to lose their men to the enemy. Finally, on the tiny island of Corregidor in Manila Bay, the Japanese took them prisoner. For three long years in an internment camp--years marked by loneliness and starvation--they kept to their mission and stuck together. In the end, it was this loyalty, this sense of purpose, womanhood and honor, that both challenged and saved them. Through interviews with survivors and through unpublished letters, diaries, and journals, Elizabeth M. Norman vividly re-creates that time, telling the story in richly drawn portraits and in a dramatic narrative delivered in the voices of the women who were there

Psychosocial adjustment of Brazilian women with breast cancer by Elenice D. R. de Paula Lima( )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of this study was to examine the relationship between psychosocial adjustment and social support and symptom distress, among Brazilian women receiving post surgical treatment for breast cancer. The theoretical framework was provided by Lazarus and Folkman's theory on stress and coping (Lazarus & Folkman, 1984). The sample consisted of 120 Brazilian women receiving post-surgical treatment for breast cancer. Based on the theoretical rational two hypotheses were formulated: (1) There will be positive relation between perceived social support and psychosocial adjustment among Brazilian women receiving post surgical adjuvant therapy for breast cancer, and (2) There will be an inverse relationship between symptom distress and psychosocial adjustment among Brazilian women receiving post surgical adjuvant therapy for breast cancer. Clinical data were collected from the patient's physician to check the inclusion criteria of the study. Those with advanced breast cancer were excluded. Participants were recruited among the women who volunteered for the study, from three hospitals in the city of Belo Horizonte, Brazil. Psychosocial Adjustment was measured by the Psychosocial Adjustment to Breast Cancer Factor of the Psychosocial Adjustment to Illness Scale (Derogates, 1983). Social support was measured by the Social Support Network Inventory (Flaherty et al., 1983), and symptom distress by the Symptom Distress Scale (McCorkle & Young, 1978)
