Description

9 April 1942

Douglas MacArthur, Commanding General of the United States Armed Forces in the Far East (USAFFE), withdrew all military resources from Manila to the Bataan Peninsula. Filipino and American soldiers put up the fiercest resistance, but dwindling food and military supplies and the failure to receive reinforcement led to the fall of Bataan. MacArthur and the Commonwealth government fled to Australia.
