Determined to create the longest runway in the Pacific, the Japanese required the men to hand dig and remove a hill. Known by the POWS as "The Cut", the men dug away an entire hill under extremely brutal condiditions while being deliberately starved. Day and night, hundreds of men worked on the field.
