Welcome to Bataan Peninsula

Few are left who experienced the Bataan Death March firsthand, a grisly affair that began when 70,000 US and Filipino troops surrendered to the Japanese in April 1942. The victors marched the prisoners, many sick and injured from months of fighting, 90km from Mariveles to San Fernando, Pampanga, where they were loaded into box cars and brought by train to the Camp O’Donnell POW camp, now the Capas National Shrine. Along the way some 15,000 to 25,000 American and Filipino troops perished.
