Thunder on Bataan is remarkable for its sharp descriptions of the desperate and little-known tank battles that ended only when Corregidor was surrendered. But it is equally remarkable for setting context, and for making the men who fought them-and who subsequently suffered horribly at the hands of their Japanese captors-real and believable. Thunder on Bataan is well-told history and is highly recommended. -- Jay A. Stout, LtCol (Ret), USMC, author of Air Apaches
Thunder on Bataan provides an incisive, readable account of a group of National Guard tankers who fought in the Philippines in the opening phase of America's war in the Pacific. This work casts a spotlight upon a little known campaign and combat organization. It chronicles the Provisional Tank Group from its creation through training and deployment to the Philippines, where it fought the Japanese in jungle terrain while struggling to sustain itself amid dwindling supplies of food, fuel, and ammunition. -- Robert S. Cameron, Ph.D., military historian and author of Mobility, Shock, and Firepower: The Emergence of the U.S. Army's Armor Branch, 1917-1945
