“The Harrodsburg Tankers” tells the story of a National Guard outfit called to active duty before the United States entered World War II. In November 1941, they were sent to the Philippines and 18 days after their arrival, the Japanese attacked. They became part of the Bataan Death March and went on to endure 3-1/2 horrific years as prisoners of the Japanese. Of the 66 members taken into captivity, only 37 survived. Several were interviewed for this hour-long documentary.
