Just new here. I am in the process of creating a comic book about the Philippines in WW2, and through online research, I came upon this forum.
One thing I noticed is that while there are dozens of books about the Philippines in the war, most of it are from the western perspective. Are there any online resources available that details what the Filipino soldiers and civilians have gone through?
I am currently living in China so visiting any Filipiniana sections of the libraries in the Philippines not an option. What I want is to portray accurately not just the US soldiers but the plight of civilians as well. The comic is a personal project and hopefully to launch the first issue on April 9th of next year.
By the way, here's a draft of a cover for the first issue.
I haven't read all the threads on this forum but am I glad I found it!
In my opinion the errors do not take away from the story. Many are editing/proof-reading errors where for example a regiment is referred to as a regiment in one paragraph then, referred to as a division in another. Some photos in the book are also miscaptioned. There's one of the 14th Engineers captioned as being the 26th Cavalry. There's also a photo of a reenactor friend of ours which was miscaptioned as being Felipe Fernandez in Bataan.
