Corregidor, Philippines

After the Japanese invasion of the Philippines in December 1941, this island in Manila Bay was selected as a leading defense position by Gen. Douglas MacArthur. After heroic resistance, it surrendered on May 6, 1942. It was retaken by returning American troops in February 1945.
