Abstract:

Ramon Magsaysay, former mechanic, soldier, military governor, congressman, Secretary of national defense, and President of the Philippines, was successful against the Hukbalahap insurgency when two Presidents before him had failed. The evidence of this study supports the hypothesis that this leader used a unique psychological operations plan, based mainly on promise, which resulted in the defeat of the Hukbalahap.
