The Great Raid
“It’s going to be extremely dangerous,” he said. “Some of you might not make it back.”
— Lt. Col. Henry Mucci
On January 30, 1945 one of the most daring raids conducted in Pacific theater, during World War II, was executed by the United States Army Rangers along with Filipino Alamo Scouts. The Raid at Cabanatuan, also referred to as The Great Raid, would to this day be marked as one of the most daring raids in the history of the war. The Great Raid liberated more than 500 Allied POW’s from the Cabanatuan Prison Camp. Many of these POW’s were the survivor from the Bataan Death March. The Raid at Cabanatuan also marked some of the intense campaigns that were led by the U.S Army Rangers, most notably the 6th Ranger Battalion who was lead Lt. Col. Henry Mucci.
