The Department of Defense believes that more than 1,600 Americans and 10,000 Filipinos died at Camp O'Donnell in about a six-week period of time.  The place had non-existent sanitation facilities with very little food, water or medicine.

Prisoners of war who had survived the Death March needed help when they arrived at O'Donnell.  None was forthcoming.
