Reconciliation efforts over the devastating Japanese occupation in the Philippines have been going on between the peoples of the two countries since early 2000s. However, this process will never be complete without reconciliation within the Philippines between the so-called “collaborators” and the rest of the citizens. This book is a step toward that effort, as it examines the history of the Sakdalista and Ganap movement whose members collaborated with the Japanese occupation forces. The book pays particular attention to the motives and sentiments of those who joined the movement.
