The Philippines in World War II, 1941-1945: A Chronology and Select Annotated Bibliography of Books and Articles in English

By Walter F. Bell | Go to book overview

Preface

The idea for this project first occurred to me when I was working in the university archives at the University of North Texas in the Summer of 1995. One of my tasks at that time was the indexing of the UNT Oral History Program's collection of oral histories done by Professor Ron Marcello with veterans of the Pacific War. Many of these individuals were veterans of the fighting in the Philippines, particularly on Bataan and Corregidor early in the war who subsequently became prisoners of war and suffered through years of Japanese captivity. This project began as a bibliography for American prisoners-of-war captured in the Pacific, but it became a part of a larger endeavor concerned with World War II in the Philippines.

World War II in the Philippines has fascinated this writer for a number of years. Much of my interest grows out of the large number of controversial issues surrounding wartime developments in the islands - particularly the conduct of General Douglas MacArthur and the influence of his fixation with the Philippines on his strategic outlook and his relationships with his superiors. Another key issue for this writer is the war's impact on Philippine society.

No project of this size and scope can be the accomplishment of one individual, and I have accumulated a number of debts during the course of its completion. I am particularly grateful for the help provided by the interlibrary loan department of the Emily Fowler Library, Denton, Texas. The staff of the LINT Library was very patient and helpful with their suggestions for improving the contents of this bibliography. I am particularly indebted to Nancy Fitzgerald Viens for the help she provided in the details of creating and printing of these documents. Others more numerous to name
