Product Description presents for the first time ever online the complete and unabridged versions of two articles by Peter Parsons: The Battle of Manila: Myth and Fact, A Research Odyssey delivered on February 7, 2008 at the Ortigas WWII Library; and Memorare Meme, The Magic number: 100,000, a companion piece written and added to the main body of the surrounding work about ten years later. Peter Parsons was born in Baguio in 1937. When WWII began he was immediately put under house arrest by the Imperial Japanese Army. At the time of the family’s departure from the Philippines, (his father’s claim of diplomatic privilege as Panamanian Consul was granted) Peter became the country’s youngest guerrilla when he held on to the intelligence papers that his father had accumulated. Discovery of those sheets would have meant instant death. Peter now lives in Baguio, has produced documentaries on subjects related to WWII in the Philippines, and too, has several novels, short stories and memoirs to be soon available on Amazon Kindle, Barnes and Noble and Kobo.
