Synopsis

“A season in hell is what’s offered by this panorama of suffering and inhumanity, the most agonizing account I have read of South Manila’s 1945 ordeal. What a labor of research must have gone into this reportage. Whenever an episode has you feeling you have discerned the limits of man’s capacity for pain, another episode comes up with an even grislier example of the brutality of men at war. Alfonso Aluit is to be hailed for telling it as it was. This is unquestionably the history book of the year.”
