Captain Robert Prince - Cabanatuan Raid

Captain Robert Prince - Cabanatuan Raid American History Famous Historical Events Film World History World War II

Colonel Henry Mucci needed his best men to plan the details of the Great Raid on Cabanatuan. For the prison-camp details, he used the skills of Robert Prince (whom Mucci called "my wonderful Captain").

The two men greatly respected each other. Of Mucci, Prince said:

We knew he was selling us the blue sky, but we would have followed him anywhere.

In this image, we see Captain Prince on the 30th of January, 1945, shortly before the Cabanatuan raid began. He is looking at Ranger Captain James Fisher, M.D., who died of wounds he sustained after the raid (while the men were returning to Allied lines).
