When their unit was called to serve in Bataan, Bob became a runner, taking messages between his Commanding Officer and regimental headquarters. Forrest became a scout, often spending whole days lying in the hot sun in a rice paddy close to the front to count artillery pieces, men, autos and trucks.

On the fall of Bataan the two were alone, away from the rest of the company. Bob was captured by a group of Japanese soldiers. During the encounter one of them broke his leg with a rifle butt, leaving him for dead. His only means for survival was to walk the ninety-mile death march using that leg. Forrest fell into the hands of Japanese officers. Both were taken with thousands of other prisoners to Camp O’Donnell. Bob was failing while Forrest did not appear to suffer, clashing frequently with Captain Savage in his attempt to find and save Bob.

Determined to ruin Forrest, Captain Savage observed him constantly. At the close of the war Captain Savages hatred led him to court martial Forrest Montgomery. The impetus of the book can be said to be the heated court martial and the accurate account of the lives of POWs in Camp O’Donnell.
