About the book:
A definitive account of the American Occupation of Cebu province, it brings together a large mass of original data not only on battles and skirmishes, but also on such topics as the finances of the resistance, collaboration, and factionalism among Cebuanos. It looks at brigandage and the background and motives of the personalities involved in the events and carries the reader forward, beyond the war itself, to a reflection of the making of local history.
