THE FIGHTING FILIPINOS
This is a poster the US government printed 15,000 copies of in 1943 to commemorate the first year fall of Bataan. They commissioned a Filipino illustrator, Rey Isip, working in a New York newspaper who, in turn, used his nephew as a model. The posters hung in universities and colleges throughout the country.
