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.

Escort Carrier USS White Plains is Attacked by Kamikaze, Battle of Leyte Gulf, October 1944

Taken on 1944-10-25

"White Plains attack by Tokkotai unit 25 October 1944. The aircraft in the photograph missed the carrier and impacted the water." "The escort carrier or escort aircraft carrier (hull classification symbol CVE), also called a "jeep carrier" or "baby flattop" in the United States Navy (USN) or "Woolworth Carrier" by the Royal Navy, was a small and slow type of aircraft carrier used by the Royal Navy, the Imperial Japanese Navy and Imperial Japanese Army Air Force, and the United States Navy in World War II. They were typically half the length and a third the displacement of larger fleet carriers. While they were slower, carried fewer planes, and were less well armed and armored, escort carriers were cheaper and could be built quickly - this was their principal advantage, as escort carriers could be completed in greater numbers as a stop-gap when fleet carriers were scarce."
