It Took Four Years for the Rising to Sun to Set: The Second Edition by Joaquin L. Garcia

Title: It Took Four Years for the Rising to Sun to Set: The Second Edition
Author: Joaquin L. Garcia
Synopsis: More than fifty years after the Liberation of Manila in 1945, various works on the last days of the war have appeared. Most of these memories are being shared by survivors of those painful days, perhaps, to ensure that the next generation does not forget, for these memories, etched in the minds of the survivors, must be forever recorded as a permanent reminder to future generations of Filipinos of the horrors of war and of man’s inhumanity to man. What makes this volume especially memorable is that it covers the entire period, admittedly, from the perspective of a relatively confined section of South Manila. It is remarkable because it is the memories of a boy who went through the day-to-day happenings of the period and recorded these in his young mind, now shared in writing for the first time with his family, friends and colleagues.
