Book: Rampage: MacArthur, Yamashita and the Battle of Manila
Synopsis: American General Douglas MacArthur, driven from the Philippines under the cover of darkness at the beginning of World War II, famously vowed to return. This is the untold story of his homecoming. The 29-day battle to retake Manila resulted in the catastrophic destruction of the city and a rampage by Japanese soldiers and marines that terrorized the civilian population. Landmarks were demolished, houses torched, suspected resistance fighters were tortured and killed, countless women raped, and their husbands and children murdered. An estimated 100,000 civilians were slain in a massacre as heinous as “The Rape of Nanking.” Based on extensive research in the Philippines and the United States, war crimes testimony, after-action reports, and survivor interviews, "Rampage" recounts one of the most heartbreaking chapters of the Pacific war. Scott is a Pulitzer Prize finalist ("Target Tokyo"), the author of several critically acclaimed books of military history ("The War Below" and "The Attack on Liberty"), and a frequent speaker at military bases, presidential libraries, book festivals, universities and museums and on news media.
