ONODA by Arthur Harari

ONODA, 10 000 Nights in the Jungle

Japan, 1944. Trained for intelligence work, Hiroo Onoda, 22 years old, discovers a philosophy that’s contrary to the official line : no suicide, no giving up, the mission is more important than anything else. Sent to Lubang, a small island in the Philippines where the Americans are about to land, his role will be to wage a guerrilla war until the return of the Japanese troops.
The Empire will surrender a year later; Onoda, 10,000 days later.
