Bolomen: Stories of the Civilian Resistance in Wartime Ilocos by Dominador Javellana III

Title: Bolomen: Stories of the Civilian Resistance in Wartime Ilocos: “Dimonto coma lipaten ti pateg ti pinilida a pinagbayad gapu ken wayawaya…” (…that you may never forget the price they chose to pay for freedom.”)
Author: Dominador Javellana III.
Synopsis: “Wherever there were Japanese, there was a silent, secret society that emerged from the forest, the farms, the school buildings, and shops. Ordinary men of all ages, many barely in their teens, were recruited in hushed tones into civilian para-military units called Bolo Battalions. With no guns, little training, and a fierce devotion to their beloved Amianan, they defied the Japanese Imperial Army with all the courage they could muster. Without them, the guerrillas would have been wiped out.
