Get a book entitled The Sea was My Last Chance, was written by Donald H. Wills and published by McFarland Publishing. This book was released on 31 July 1992 with total pages 169. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. D.H. (Herb) Wills fought the Japanese on Bataan, was captured and imprisoned, first for a year at the infamous Cabanatuan camp, then for another year 700 miles south at Davao prison, on Mindanao. Embarking for dreaded imprisonment in Japan in 1944, he dove overboard and swam four miles back to Mindanao where he joined the ragtag guerrillas, electing to stay and fight until the island's liberation rather than leave by submarine. Successful campaigns by the Filipino guerrillas, led by Lt. Wills, at Misamis, Malaband, and Dipolog were instrumental in the liberation of Mindanao.
