Return of the Allies showcases the U.S. taking back their Philippine commonwealth from Japan on Victory at Sea
Just before the U. S. entered World War II, the Japanese managed to conquer their Commonwealth of the Philippines. After Pearl Harbor, some plans began formulating on freeing the Asian island from the Land of the Rising Sun but a full scale invasion didn't come to fruition until 1944. By January of the following year, much of the Philippines was liberated as its people cheered the Americans and looked forward to complete independence two years later...A touching tribute to the will of the Philippine people to survive among insurmountable odds the barbaric regime of Japan as they waited for the U.S. liberation. On a personal note, my dad was there as a toddler while my mom was born there during some of those battles. Maybe someday I'll ask them about this period. Anyway, kudos as always for the stirring narration and music from, respectively, Leonard Graves and Richard Rodgers. Most highly recommended for World War II history buffs as well as those interested in their Philippine heritage.
