What is a description of the battle between Spain and the US near the Philippines in World War 2?

The only time Spain and the US have fought anywhere was during the Spanish-American War of 1898, not during WWII, which was more than forty years later. In 1898 the Philippines had been a Spanish colony for more than 300 years. During the Spanish-American War the US Pacific squadron under Admiral Dewey fought the Spanish Fleet in the Battle of Manila Bay. The Spanish Fleet was completely destroyed, there were no Americans killed or wounded, and the Philippines were no longer a Spanish colony, but an American colony. The Philippines became an independent nation in 1947.
