Captured by the Japanese after the Philippines fell, Lester Tenney was among the few to survive the legendary Bataan Death March. He witnessed fellow POWs die by the hundreds from thirst, wounds, disease, and the Japanese guards' savage mistreatment. Armed only with his sense of humor, sharp mind, and fierce determination, Tenney then endured three and a half years as a slave laborer in miserable Japanese POW camps. "My Hitch in Hell" is an inspiring survivor's epic about the triumph of human will despite unimaginable suffering.
