General Douglas MacArthur's bloody campaign to defeat die-hard Japanese forces and liberate the Philippines   “I shall return,” General Douglas MacArthur promised the Filipino people following the Japanese invasion and occupation of the Philippines in spring 1942. The people there believed MacArthur’s vow—and even Americans were stirred by his dramatic pledge. Now, two and h General Douglas MacArthur's bloody campaign to defeat die-hard Japanese forces and liberate the Philippines   “I shall return,” General Douglas MacArthur promised the Filipino people following the Japanese invasion and occupation of the Philippines in spring 1942. The people there believed MacArthur’s vow—and even Americans were stirred by his dramatic pledge. Now, two and half years later, MacArthur was ready to fulfill his promise--the liberation of the Philippines was about to begin.   It would not be an easy campaign. The more than 7,000 islands of the Philippine archipelago were the key to taking down the Japanese Empire—and the Imperial forces were prepared to sacrifice every man and every ship to prevent MacArthur from regaining control of them.   Covering both the strategic and tactical aspects of the campaign through the participation of its soldiers, sailors, and airmen, as well as its commanders, James P. Duffy leads readers through a vivid account of the nearly year-long, bloody campaign to defeat over a quarter million die-hard Japanese defenders in the Pacific theater. Return to Victory is a wide-ranging, dramatic and stirring account of MacArthur’s epic liberation of the Philippines.

    The moronic descriptions of an exalted. Never mind the dead, it was EPIC. And who cares what the people wanted? It was a liberation. In the same way the Japanese before them Liberated the locals. Or the Spanish before who also Liberated the population. And notice how life over there, after the American second Liberation, is pretty much like say life in the UK. A worthy effort to keep the drug plantations working for Democracy.
