Bandit Zone: A History of the Free Areas of Negros Island During the Japanese Occupation (1942-1945) by Earl Jude Paul L. Cleope

Title: Bandit Zone: A History of the Free Areas of Negros Island During the Japanese Occupation (1942-1945)
Author: Earl Jude Paul L. Cleope
Synopsis: This book has been conceived with the objective of presenting the life of the people who lived in the Free Areas of Negros Island during the Japanese Occupation. The writing of this book is inspired by the need to document the experiences of the Negrenses who took refuge in this so-called "Bandit Zone." Since the liberation to the present, voluminous accounts have been written which deal with battles and the experiences of the combatants as well as the non-combatants. Americans who viewed the war from their end wrote various accounts too. But very few accounts deal with the areas that were not occupied by the Japanese Imperial Army. It must be noted that although the Philippines was an occupied country, the Japanese forces were only concentrated in what they considered as strategic and key areas. This was in consideration of personnel, logistics, and maintenance problems. Thus, a lot of areas were not occupied; hence, they had a different story to offer.
