List item

The Philippines Campaign was a major battle that took place when the Imperial Japanese Army invaded the Philippines during World War II. The islands were fiercely defended by Filipino forces allied with the United States Army. Although the Japanese were outnumbered by a large margin, they still managed to overrun the main island of Luzon and capture it within the first month. The fighting continued for months leading to the deaths of approximately 23,000 American troops and 100,000 Filipinos. This devastating defeat is still considered one of the worst battles in US history.
