    Living with the Enemy: A Diary of the Japanese Occupation

    Pacita Pestano-Jacinto

    Winner, National Book Award, Biography / Autobiography, 1999
    From December 9, 1941 to February 24, 1945, Pacita Pestano-Jacinto chronicled the tense times that came with the Japanese invasion of Manila. In her detailed war diary, she paints a portrait of a time when the city?and the lives of many Filipinos?was occupied, and under the threat of death. There is an engrossing honesty and simplicity to this well-told tale of survival and, ultimately, liberation. It tells of a young woman’s experiences, thoughts, and reflections about what it means to be young during World War II in the Philippines. With an abridged version (2002).
