- DescriptionBecause of their strategic location, the Philippines exercised a profound influence in the thinking of both Japanese and American strategists before and during World War II.

This work provides a finding aid for individuals seeking to deal with these issues. A bibliographic overview of available periodical and book literature in English, this book is multidimensional, encompassing all aspects-military, political, ecomic, and social-of the Pacific War as it relates to developments in the archipelago.
