The Bataan death march was when the japense attacked the Philippines. The two counties got in a war. The Americans helped the Filipino's fight off the japenese. At last the Philippines and Americans surrendered.


Since they surrendered they were forced to what is called the death march. There were about 60,000- 80,000 prisoners. 5,000-8,000 Filipino soldiers died and 500-650 American soldiers died. They were forced to walk 69.6 miles no stop. They weren't given any food or water. So what the soldiers did was they drank muddy water from the rice fields. If the japenese saw any weak soldiers they would take a knife and kill them.
