Beginning the March

Beginning the March
After capture by the Japanese, 8,000 American and approximately 40,000 Philippine troops began the march back up the Bataan Peninsula, staggering along the road for a period of ten days to two weeks. A Japanese wipes off his bayonet after killing a POW who has fallen out.
