FEATURED WEB SITE: WWII GUERILLA MONEY OF THE PHILIPPINES

This week's featured web site is on the WWII emergency and guerrilla
paper money issues of the Philippines.

"The purpose of this site is to illustrate the indomitable will of
the human spirit, and to show the many sides of conflict.  This will
be accomplished through the use of the currency which was made for
use during, and immediately following, WWII in the Philippines.
The Guerrilla money, which is the main focus of this web site, was
accepted out of both national pride as much as necessity.  To be
caught by the Japanese with this money was often punishable by
public execution."
