Rate this:
The true story of three intrepid people who successfully eluded the Japanese in Manila for more than two years, sabotaging enemy efforts and preparing the way for MacArthur's return. One was a debonair polo-playing expatriate businessman who was also a U.S. Navy intelligence officer. Another was a defiant enlisted American soldier. And the third was a wily American woman, an intinerant torch singer with many names and almost as many husbands. With ample doses of intrigue, drama, skulduggery, sacrifice, and romance, this book has all the complicated heroism and villainy of the best war novels. But it is, in the end, a true tale of courage when it counted the most-- adapted from book jacket.

Interesting WWII spy stories in the Philippines, but MacArthur appears in name only - he had almost nothing to do with the spies in the Philippines and deserves no credit for their efforts.
