The fight for the freedom of the Philippines from Japanese

invasion. The American evacuation of the Philippines was the result

of Japan's aggression in East Asia. General MacArthur would keep

his promise and did return. Before this happened there was a top

secret meeting between President Roosevelt, MacArthur, and Admiral

Nimitz. MacArthur talked the president to retake the Philippines

instead of attacking Formosa.
