Father John Fidelis Hurley, S.J., aged forty-six, was a powerfully built and indomitable young man who assumed office as the superior of the Jesuit Mission of the Philippines in 1936. Nine years later, on 15 December 1945, Father Hurley, with a body no longer young and whose health was permanently impaired by several months of incarceration under the Japanese at the University of Santo Tomas concentration camp, but with a spirit still indomitable, gladly relinquished the reins of his religious office to other hands. In this book, Father Hurley shares his experiences from the first days of World War II until the end of hostilities. He saw and endured the pain brought by war, but lived through it optimistically, first hand and vicariously, through the different personalities —American, Filipinos, Japanese, and others— whom he knew and got it contact with.
