Rampage: MacArthur, Yamashita And The Battle Of Manila
- World War II
“I have returned.”
On January 2, 1942, Japanese forces seized the Philippine capital of Manila. American General Douglas MacArthur famously vowed to return—and three years later, he kept his promise. In Rampage, James M. Scott masterfully recounts the savage battle to liberate the city.
MacArthur was convinced the Japanese would abandon Manila as he had, but they remained, determined to fight to the death. The twenty-nine-day battle resulted in the destruction of the city and a horrific rampage by Japanese. In the end, an estimated 100,000 civilians lost their lives in a massacre as heinous as the Rape of Nanking.
The liberation of Manila came at a horrific price, and James M. Scott captures it here with unflinching detail and visceral immediacy.
