This month: War Journal:  The Incredible World War II Escape of Major Damon “Rocky” Gause

Two Americans, Damon Gause and William Lloyd Osborne, escapees of Bataan, who, in 1942, in a leaky fishing boat, sailed from the Philippines to Australia. It took the two 52 days and 3,200 miles to reach freedom. They faced typhoons, constant threats from Japanese ships, submarines and airplanes, lack of water and food and even a visit to the world’s largest leper colony.
