the battling bastards of battan

the battaan death march

during WWII the Japanese did not have the proper facility's to manage all the POWs they had taken and so they forced them to march 80 miles and refused to feed anyone until they reached the new camp aprx 10,000 men were killed or starved and aprx another 10,000 died of illness these. this was my initial idea for the scene play "Help Is Not Coming" but marching would be almost impossible to read on stage and so we refined and refined and eventually got to our product. my character starves to death and this image is just haunting this is how my character felt. i also included the Bataan battalion insignia their struggle really influenced my characters actions and reactions with my CO (Dirk) and my squad-mate (Sara).
