48 kilometers west of Manila one can find Corregidor Island, a small rocky island, strategically located at the entrance of Manila Bay. When the Japanese invaded the Philippines in December 1941, the military force, under the command of Gen. Douglas MacArthur, carried out a delaying action at Bataan. At this time, Corregidor became the headquarters of the Allied forces and also the seat of the Philippine Commonwealth government.
Although Bataan fell on April 9, 1942, the Philippine and American forces held out at Corregidor for 27 days against all the odds but by May 6, 1942, with depleted rations, the Allied troops were forced to surrender Corregidor to Lt. Gen. Homma Masaharu of the Japanese Imperial Army.
Now, the fortress island stands strong yet silent with the ruins of buildings, its structures, tunnels and former battleground telling the moving story of a war that has claimed so many lives but led to peace and freedom for many.
In his speech delivered at the signing of the surrender of Japan aboard the U.S.S. Missouri at Tokyo Bay on September 2, 1945, General Douglas MacArthur said, “It is my earnest hope and indeed the hope of all mankind that a better world shall emerge out of the blood, and carnage of the past – a world founded upon faith and understanding, a world dedicated to the dignity of man and the fulfillment of his most cherished wish for freedom, tolerance and justice.”
