The American and Filipino guerrillas that fought against the Japanese occupation of the Philippines were key in providing direction to resistance efforts and in the eventual liberation of the islands. The Japanese failure to deal with isolated soldiers and civilians provided the latter with the time they needed to organize into guerrilla groups and prepare for the American forces liberation of the Philippines. The guerrillas escaped the aggressive counter-guerrilla efforts of the Imperial Japanese Army. This analysis of American and Filipino guerrillas covers the effectiveness of Japanese counter-guerrilla efforts, the intelligence structure created by General Douglas MacArthurs staff to support the guerrillas, and the guerrillas contributions to the liberation of the Philippines. The monograph also provides general insight as to how resistance movements form.
