[ 20-10-2003 ] U.S Forces Land at Leyte in the Philippines (20th October 1944)
More than 100,000 American soldiers land on Leyte Island, in the Philippines in 1944, as preparation for the major invasion by Gen. Douglas MacArthur. The ensuing battles of Leyte Island proved among the bloodiest of the war in the Pacific and signaled the beginning of the end for the Japanese.
