On December eight, 1941, because the Pacific conflict reached the Philippines, Yay Panlilio, a Filipina-Irish American, confronted a question without effortless solution: How may perhaps she give a contribution to the war?In this 1950 memoir, The Crucible: An Autobiography by means of Colonel Yay, Filipina American Guerrilla, Panlilio narrates her adventure as a journalist, triple agent, chief within the Philippine resistance opposed to the japanese, and lover of the guerrilla normal Marcos V. Augustin. From the war-torn streets of Japanese-occupied Manila, to battlegrounds within the nation-state, and the agricultural farmlands of valuable California, Panlilio blends wry statement, rigorous journalistic element, and renowned romance.Weaving jointly appearances by way of Douglas MacArthur and Carlos Romulo with risky espionage networks, this paintings presents an insightful point of view at the battle. The Crucible invitations readers to determine new intersections in Filipina/o, Asian American, and American literature stories, and Denise Cruz's advent imparts key biographical, old, and cultural contexts to that objective.
