On December 8, 1941, as the Pacific War reached the Philippines, Yay Panlilio, a Filipina-Irish American, faced a question with no easy answer: How could she contribute to the war?In this 1950 memoir,The Crucible: An Autobiography by Colonel Yay, Filipina American Guerrilla,Panlilio narrates her experience as a journalist, triple agent, leader in the Philippine resistance against the Japanese, and lover of the guerrilla general Marcos V. Augustin. From the war-torn streets of Japanese-occupied Manila, to battlegrounds in the countryside, and the rural farmlands of central California, Panlilio blends wry commentary, rigorous journalistic detail, and popular romance.Weaving together appearances by Douglas MacArthur and Carlos Romulo with dangerous espionage networks, this work provides an insightful perspective on the war.The Crucibleinvites readers to see new intersections in Filipina/o, Asian American, and American literature studies, and Denise Cruz’s introduction imparts key biographical, historical, and cultural contexts to that purpose.
