Published by Vibal Group, Inc., ©2023.

In Children of War, writer and journalist Joan Orendain presents a uniquely poignant accounting of one of the most formative events in the lives of her generation, and one of the most devastating periods in Philippine the three-year Japanese occupation during the Second World War, as remembered by the children who lived through it.

The author weaves together the experiences of witnesses from all over the country, hailing from different walks of life. From the tense uncertainty of the first outbreak of war and looming invasion, to the day-to-day struggles and small victories of life under enemy occupation, to the carnage and unrelenting horror of the final battle for liberation, the narrative uncovers the lifelong scars carried by those who had to grow up before their time.
