I shall return is attributed to General Douglas MacArthur following his defence of the Bataan Peninsular, on the Philippines.

After the island's defenses were overrun by the Japanese, President Roosevelt ordered MacArthur to withdraw to Australia. As he left he made his famous vow to the Filipinos he was leaving behind.
