The riveting story of Iliff David Richardson, a young man from Los Angeles, who enlisted in the Navy and went out to the Philippines about a year before the start of World War II, as an officer on the U.S.S. Bittern, a mine sweeper. He then transferred to the famous "expendable" motor torpedo boat Squadron 3, commanded by John d. Bulkeley, and fought these boats until they were shot out from under him. When Corregidor fell and the last torpedo boat was sunk, Richardson declined to include himself out of the war. This book is the story of what happened to him afterwards, when he involved himself in the guerrilla movement on Leyte, worked up to chief of staff to Col. Ruperto Kangleon, and ultimately became primarily responsible for the radio network which was General MacArthur's light back to Leyte.
