91st Div (Philippine Army)
Luther Stevens had a long prewar career in the Philippine Constabulary which made him an excellent choice to command the 91st Div (Philippine Army). He was promoted to Brig. Gen. and served at that rank throughout the campaign. My father served in the 71st Inf (PA) but when the 71st Div was broken up, the 71st Inf became part of the 91st Div (PA) and placed under Gen. Steven's command. (My father's Silver Star Citation from was signed by B/G Luther Stevens.). By the end of the action on Bataan he was the most senior front line commander of the Western Sector. At the surrender, he and the American officers under his command, including my father, were trucked South to the Mariveles area on Bataan. After some rough treatment they were placed under the command of a "civilized" Japanese Colonel and Stevens was able to get the men some captured American rations. Over the next 2 days they were trucked from Southern Bataan to Balanga and joined the Death March. Gen. Stevens was beaten during the Death March and arrived at Camp O'Donnell in poor condition. He was saved by being moved to Capas with the senior officers but did not make the initial voyage with them to Taiwan. Instead, he followed in Dec 1942 aboard a ship named Yuzan Maru. The Senior officers on Taiwan were transferred to Japan and then Manchuria in Oct-Dec 1944. Gen. Stevens arrived at the Mukden POW camp on 21 May 1945. I learned from a tape recording made from a former POW, Maj. Roy Doran, that Gen Steven wrote an autobiography. Doran had read the diary while at Mukden and remarked that it was a fascinating story. I've never heard any other mention of it. If unearthed it likely fill in some large holes in the story of the 91st Div (PA). (courtesy of Jim Erickson)
