About the Book
In February 1945, American forces vindicated the surrender on Corregidor.
History has a way of reviving events in a wholly different mood from that in which they took place.
In 1945, when America returned to Corregidor as the attacking force, the positions which existed in 1942 were reversed. The island was taken in less than two weeks. The depths of defeat were vindicated, at last, by an equally spectacular victory. In both extremes, citizens in uniform demonstrated their capacity to meet with triumph and disaster.
Through the Corregidor Historic Society and, more recently the 503d PRCT Heritage Regiment., Paul presents thirteen publications, all connected in some way with Corregidor and the US Armed Forces in the SWPA during WWII. He started developing the Corregidor.Org website about the 1941-42 siege and the 1945 retaking of Corregidor as a penance for being an insolvency lawyer. Now retired, he has produced ten websites, more than a dozen Military History books, and has co-produced, with Peter Parsons, the documentary of the 1945 retaking of Corregidor - "CORREGIDOR - THE ROAD BACK. He married Rosie in 1980, has three adult children, and hates cats. He lives between two shores, Corregidor and Brisbane, Australia.
