In this image of a Japanese-taken photograph, we see men resting during their trek from Mariveles to Camp O'Donnell on the Bataan Peninsula. 

Already exhausted from lack of supplies and food, many of the Americans and Filipinos did not survive the journey.  Those who did were in for more misery at Camps O'Donnell and Cabanatuan.
