MacArthur Observes the Shelling of Incheon, Korea, September 1950

Taken on 1950-09-15

US General MacArthur's amphibious landing at Incheon, a coastal city west of Seoul on the Yellow Sea, is perhaps the best known operation of the entire Korean War. Surprising communist troops and pushing back the tide of a DPRK advance that had cornered UN troops in the ROK's far southeast, this operation marked a significant turning point in the war that saw UN forces take the upper hand - for a time.

"Mao also began to execute his plan to establish a new China by rapidly moving his forces from Yan'an and elsewhere to Manchuria. This opportunity was available to the Communists because although Nationalist representatives were not invited to Yalta, they had been consulted and had agreed to the Soviet invasion of Manchuria in the belief that the Soviet Union would deal only with the Nationalist government after the war."

General MacArthur Lands at Leyte, Philippines, October 1944

Taken on 1944-10-30

"After General MacArthur had been evacuated from the Philippines in March 1942, all of its islands fell to the Japanese. The Japanese occupation was harsh, accompanied by atrocities and with large numbers of Filipinos pressed into slave labor. From mid-1942 through mid-1944, MacArthur and Nimitz supplied and encouraged the Filipino guerrilla resistance by U.S. Navy submarines and a few parachute drops, so that the guerrillas could harass the Japanese Army and take control of the rural jungle and mountainous areas – amounting to about half of the archipelago. While remaining loyal to the United States, many Filipinos hoped and believed that liberation from the Japanese would bring them freedom and their already-promised independence." Exact date unknown.

"By December 23, 1940, upon approval by the War Department, State Department and the President of the United States, an agreement was reached to provide China the 100 P-40B Tomahawk aircraft which had originally been built for Britain, but which the British were persuaded to give up in preference for newer models rapidly being built. With an agreement reached, General Mow returned to China aboard the SS Lurline, departing from Los Angeles on January 24, 1941. Chennault followed shortly after with a promise from the War Department and President Roosevelt to be delivered to Chiang Kai-shek that several shipments of P-40C fighters were forthcoming along with pilots, mechanics, and aviation supplies."

Japanese Prince Yasuhiko Asaka, Japan, December 1940

Japanese Prince Yasuhiko Asaka, Japan, December 1940

Taken on 1940-12-05

"In November 1937, Prince Asaka became temporary commander of the Japanese forces outside Nanking (or Nanjing), then capital of China, because General Matsui was ill. As temporary commander of the final assault on Nanking between 2 and 6 December 1937, he allegedly issued the order to "kill all captives", thus providing official sanction for what became known as the "Nanking Massacre" or the "Rape of Nanking" (12 December 1937 – 10 February 1938). The order may have actually been issued, without the Prince's knowledge or assent, by Lieutenant Colonel Isamu Chō. He was a known radical ultra-nationalist staff member of the Central China Area Army who may have released the order under the sign manual of Asaka. This is a moot point, however, for Prince Asaka, who was nominally the officer in charge, allowed the carnage to continue for 4 days before the arrival of General Matsui."
