On January 9, 1945, U.S. army General Douglas MacArthur led his troops into the heart of the Philippines against a quarter of a million Japanese soldiers. At stake was not only a tactically important piece of real estate in the South China Sea, but also the lives of tens of thousands of Allied POWs, who had suffered unimaginable privations at the hands of their captors.
