This is a 19 slide, highly animated, power point presentations on World War II - Pacific Theater - Bataan Death March. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.
The Bataan Death March was the forcible transfer from Saisaih Pt. and Mariveles to Camp O'Donnell by the Imperial Japanese Army of 60,000–80,000 Filipino and American prisoners of war which began on April 9, 1942, after the three month Battle of Bataan in the Philippines during World War II.
The reported death tolls vary, especially amongst Filipino POWs, because historians cannot determine how many prisoners blended in with the civilian population and escaped. It is believed that roughly 2,500–10,000 Filipino and 100–650 American prisoners of war died before they could reach their destination.
The first major atrocity occurred when 350 to 400 Filipino officers and NCOs were executed near the Pantingan river after they had surrendered. This massacre has been attributed to Japanese army officer Masanobu Tsuji, who acted against orders that the prisoners be transferred peacefully. Tsuji intended to kill many of the prisoners, and he gave orders to this end.
