"A Child in the Midst of Battle is a perfect blend of eyewitness accounts, interviews, and anecdotal references. I wholeheartedly recommend this book."
— William L. McGee, author
Amphibious Operations in the South Pacific in WWII

"Imperial warplanes swarmed in the sky, dropping their loads of destruction on the city at every time of the day and night. The ack-ack of anti-aircraft fire was deafening. Tracer bullets shredded the night sky. Whenever we heard the planes approaching we scurried into a large closet beneath the stairs. We held our breath at the sound of the bombs falling—a horrible whistling sound you don't forget—and braced for explosions that rocked the earth."
—from A Child in the Midst of Battle

So begins the extraordinary journey of a ten-year-old girl who—along with her family and the people of the country she loved—endured the nightmare of Japanese occupation in wartime Manila. Join her in an unforgettable story of despair, innocence lost, and, finally, renewal.
