In this book by Candie Blankman, Ken Davis's sister, you will learn how Ken’s dad, Ken Davis

Sr, enlisted in the Army in at the age of nineteen because he saw a recruiter’s poster and

decided that being in the service would be a great adventure for a young man from Minnesota.

It was 1940. Little did Ken Sr, know that war would break out and the next years of his life

would be filled with brutality and deprivation that would bring him to the brink of death. Ken

fought to defend Bataan, endured the Bataan Death March, survived two prisoner of war camps,

and a death ward in Bilibid Prison.

When he was finally liberated in September of 1945, he weighed ninety pounds and had endured

what few twenty-four year olds could even imagine. It would take three months in three different

hospitals to nurse Ken back to health, but his experience as a prisoner of war would stay with

him forever.

The faith and character forged in the fires of war would shape not only his life but also have a

defining impact on his family. Ken’s daughter, Candie, began recording her father’s story in

1992. In 2010 she traveled to the Philippine Islands and Japan, retracing the steps where her dad

fought and was held prisoner.

In 1999 Ken Sr was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease and he died in 2006. This is an inspiring

story that details the imprint war left on Ken, his daughter Candie and the Davis family. It is also

a tribute to character and faith of true hero.
