Description

1942

Hours after the attack on the US naval base in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, Japanese planes bombed key sites in the Philippines. The Philippine Commonwealth was evacuated to Corregidor island. On 26 December 1941, Manila was declared an "Open City," which meant defensive efforts were abandoned expecting that the invading army will not attack. Without the surrender of Filipino troops, the Japanese rained more bombs before marching into the city on 2 January 1942.
