About the Ebook
That's what my father wrote in one of his letters home from Manila in 1945. He hadn't been fighting - his job had been to prepare TOP SECRET communiques within MacArthur's GHQ, and his proximity to typewriters allowed him to maintain a constant stream of commentaries on what he found in Manila when the fighting had died down. These were the seeds from which the book grew, drawing from extensive collections of contemporaneous photographs of Manila.
The book contains the most comprehensive collection of images of Manila 1945 available today. It also features three articles which put the historic experience into a historic perspective.
This Edition has been specially prepared for the MacArthur Memorial, and is available in a hard cover and photowrap version.
344 pages. Full color.
