“These men suffered enough for a hundred lifetimes, and no one in this country should be allowed to forget it.”
Hampton Sides, Ghost Soldiers: The Epic Account of World War II's Greatest Rescue Mission

“The War Department in Washington briefly weighed more ambitious schemes to relieve the Americans on a large scale before it was too late. But by Christmas of 1941, Washington had already come to regard Bataan as a lost cause. President Roosevelt had decided to concentrate American resources primarily in the European theater rather than attempt to fight an all-out war on two distant fronts. At odds with the emerging master strategy for winning the war, the remote outpost of Bataan lay doomed. By late December, President Roosevelt and War Secretary Henry Stimson had confided to Winston Churchill that they had regrettably written off the Philippines. In a particularly chilly phrase that was later to become famous, Stimson had remarked, 'There are times when men have to die.”
Hampton Sides, Ghost Soldiers: The Epic Account of World War II's Greatest Rescue Mission

“We do not want to go to the right or left, but straight back to our own country!”
Hampton Sides, Blood and Thunder: An Epic of the American West
