Episode 52: The Liberation of the Philippines, Part 2



The latest episode of the podcast continues, but doesn’t quite finish, what we started in Episode 50, the American campaign to liberate the Philippines.  General Douglas MacArthur’s troops take the central islands of Leyte and Mindoro, then land on the main island, Luzon.  The campaign culminates with the terrible battle for Manila in February 1945.
