Description
"In 1944, as World War II raged in the Pacific, a young, vivacious Filipino woman with leprosy named Josefina Guerrero was swept up in the underground guerrilla movement in Manila. The convent-educated girl who loved reading poetry and listening to Chopin and Beethoven became one of the most reliable and courageous spies for the United States in the Pacific Theater, putting her life at risk for no reward but to help the Americans oust the Japanese occupiers from her homeland. She stalked through the woods, mapping machine-gun turrets around Manila Bay and delivering the maps to the United States so Gen. Douglas MacArthur's troops knew where to drop bombs. She penetrated Japanese munitions holdings and alerted underground leaders. She secreted food and medicine to U.S. prisoners of war being tortured and starved in internment camps"--,Provided by publisher.
