The Battle of Leyte Gulf, fought from October 20-26, 1944, is one of the most famous and decisive battles in the Pacific War. The American forces, under the command of General Douglas MacArthur, had been dispatched to the Philippines to stop the Japanese army from expanding its control of the region. The battle was a decisive victory for the Allies, and it ultimately led to the defeat of Japan. Decision at Leyte tells the story of the battle from the perspective of the people involved, including the American and Filipino troops, the Japanese commanders, and the Allied governments. It is a gripping account of one of the most important military engagements of World War II.; B&W Photographs; 12mo ; 330 pages; TBC.
