This is a superbly written book, one that demonstrates the strength of an investigative reporter's ability to both pursue the facts and then write in a manner that keeps the reader turning pages.
Eisner has captured both a period of history, the difficult choices people unexpectedly had to make when they find themselves in the face of war, and the many facets of what turns an imperfect person into an American heroine. That it takes place in the Philippines today--with all of its political and moral values in question, only further underscores its value.
