I thought I'd share this book from my library that I've had for almost 25 years. I bought it from "The Cellar Book Shop" in Detroit MI. Morton Netzorg ran the book shop and did a thriving mail order (keep in mind this was pre-internet) business in books on the Pacific, and especially the Philippines.
He completed in the late 1970s what could only be called a labor of love - a 227 page bibliography on books, magazine articles and other resources on the Philippines during WWII. He lists items by American, Filipino and other nationalities. Most are annotated and he wasn't afraid to be critical about quality or lack, thereof.
I may be mistaken but I believe Mr. Netzorg had relatives at Santo Tomas. I know he resided in the Philippines for a long time.
I tried Googling the Cellar Book Shop, but found only a "company description. Anyone know if it is still in operation, or if Mr. Netzorg is still alive?
