We Band of Angels

We Band of Angels: The Untold Story of American Nurses Trapped on Bataan by the Japanese is a 1999 work of historical nonfiction by American historian Elizabeth Norman. The book examines the experiences of women nurses in the Philippines at the outbreak of World War II. These women were treating American soldiers at Bataan during the infamous Death March. Norman's book examines not only the lives of these women, but also how their stories fell into obscurity instead of becoming the stuff of celebrated legend. These questions will help lead your students through a discussion on this book's premise, facts, themes, and evidence.
