Abstract : By the middle of March 194-5, the campaign for the liberation of the PHILIPPINES had successfully passed the climactic stage. The original American toeholds on the periphery of the archipelago had, by a combination of multiple amphibious assaults on the beaches and protracted engagements in the mountains, been expanded until they formed an almost continuous ring around the islands.
