Full movie description "Forgotten Soldiers":When the Japanese launched their Pacific attack, General Douglas MacArthur's United States Army Forces in the Far East included ten divisions of newly recruited and poorly equipped Philippine Army soldiers, and one U.S. Army infantry division with supporting units--the Philippine Scouts. "Forgotten Soldiers" follows the U.S. Army's Philippine Scouts as they protect the fledgling Philippine Army during their retreat from Lingayen Gulf to Bataan, and the movie then relives their heroic stands on Bataan and Corregidor. Bataan, then Corregidor, were the U.S. Army's first two battles of World War II and the last Allied strongholds to hold out against the Japanese in the Pacific. These prolonged actions bought the U.S. time to reorganize its Pacific defenses and rebuild the U.S. Navy fleet the Japanese had destroyed at Pearl Harbor. Eventually, a Japanese naval blockade starved out the soldiers on Bataan and Corregidor, and the men on Bataan were subjected to one of the worst atrocities in ...
Reviews of the Forgotten SoldiersThe U.S. Army's Philippine Scouts must never be forgotten. This film is a wonderful way to educate the public to their storied history and legacy. The Scouts were formed in the early 20th century to protect the Philippines. Their finest hour took place when they faced the invading Japanese in December of 1941. The some 12,000 Scouts were never defeated in battle, but there just weren't enough of them to stem the Japanese onslaught. The Philippine Commonwealth's Army of about 100,000 was not well trained and poorly equipped. This film, Forgotten Soldiers, tells the story of the Scouts in a gripping fashion. Despite being outnumbered you can see how disciplined and aggressive they were in battle. The Japanese timetable to conquer the Philippines was completely upset largely by the determined resistance of the Scouts. This resistance was inspirational and clearly epotimzed the ensuing battle cry "Back to Bataan." My uncle, Alexander R. Nininger, Jr., was a Scout at the time of his death on Bataan. For his heroism he was awarded the Medal of Honor, one of three Scouts to be so honored. This film is a must see not only because of the exciting scenes depicting ferocious combat but it also depicts the poignant and sad surrender of Filipino-American forces and the ensuing march that has become known as the Bataan Death March.
