Wainwright announcing the surrender of American forces in the Philippine Islands, under supervision of a Japanese censor, Manila, Philippine Islands, May 7, 1942.

The initial surrender was May 6, 1942 at 1030 hours. Wainwright surrendered at Corregidor. The last US troops in the Philippine Islands surrendered on Mindanao on May 12, and organized resistance in the islands would soon wane. In the beginning the U.S. Navy and Army underestimated the use of airpower. This was before anyone realized that air power could change way we do warfare. Anyway the Navy had these big guns on Corregidor that could shoot down Navy ships from afar off and land invasion. However, here's the catch here or the mistake they made on Corregidor. They aimed the guns outward to the other side of the bay. The result of that was the Japanese Imperial Air Force bombarded them with lots of bombs making the guns one by one unusable in the end. There were also a lot of land invasions with hand to hand combat. In the end one of the facts that I was told was that the American gun crew scraped off the coordinate numbers that were for using the big guns. Also the Americans ripped their flag to pieces and stored each piece of the flag in their pockets. However, when the Japanese came and did the surrender they brought along their own copy, and used it to film the surrender of the American Forces. After that they were all loaded on boats to the mainland of the Philippines and there they began the Death March.
One last thing also Wainwright and is staff thought they were going to be treated like prisoners of war. They were wrong when the Japanese thought they were cowards for surrendering. The Japanese believed in the Bushido code, "the way of the warrior". That was the reason why the Americans were treated so horribly. But in the end General McArthur would return to the Philippines as he promised them before he left in March of 1942. And did not return until Oct. 20, 1944 -Sep 2, 1945. #worldwar2#worldwar2clubmemorandum#corregidor#philippines#worldwar2history#worldwar2historyandinstagram#staytunedformore#militaryhistory
