Summary of Mike Guardia's American Guerrilla

Please note: This is a companion version & not the original book. Sample Book Insights: #1 Russell Volckmann’s military career began on 12 June 1934, when he graduated from the United States Military Academy at West Point. He was a below average student, but he was an excellent soldier. He was drawn to the rough-and-tumble world of the Infantry. #2 In the spring of 1940, Volckmann was sent to the Philippines Islands to help train the Philippine Army. The first legislative action taken by the Philippine Assembly was to ratify the National Defense Act, which called for a standing army of 10,000 men and a reserve component of nearly 400,000. #3 The Philippines was an American territory that was under the jurisdiction of the United States Armed Forces in the Far East. USAFFE encompassed all American military assets in the Philippine archipelago. #4 The 11th Infantry Regiment, which was under Volckmann’s command, had little training and poor equipment. The soldiers spoke little English, and their native dialects would often differ from company to company.
