One of the most remarkable tales of American military history, The War Journal of Major Damon "Rocky" Gause is one man's chronicle of his incredible 159-day escape from the infamous Bataan Death March and harrowing voyage across the enemy-held Pacific in a leaky, wooden boat during World War II.

Immediately following his return to safety, Major Gause wrote his gripping memoir using his notes from the battered ship's log and the handmade diary he kept throughout the journey. The journal was then stored in the major's footlocker for more than fifty years.

Vividly written with astonishing attention to detail and a surprising sense of humor, this amazing document reveals a true American hero and pays tribute to the bravery of those who fought and died beside him.
