MACARTHUR'S PROMISE FULFILLED We turn the calendar back to January of 1941 and watch the Japanese engulf the Philippines, bomb Manila, and capture the remaining Americans on Corregidor.

Ships of all descriptions, including giant carriers with their hundreds of war birds, are in this fleet. Under a flack-filled sky, preparations are made to land troops at Lingayen. Landing boats race shoreward, and in one of them is General Douglas MacArthur. He wades ashore--his promise is fulfilled. And his mechanized army heads for Manila.
