The Real Glory

Description

In an effort to force hapless Christian natives to defend themselves from marauding Muslim pirates, United States military troops are withdrawn from the island of Mindanao, leaving only a group of officers to instruct the local militia in tactics and strategy. These men must accomplish their mission while fending off the depredations of the local pirates and dealing with a cholera epidemic.
