World War II in the Philippines

A companion tour to Victory in the Pacific featuring expert historian James Scott
March 16 – 24, 2024

About the Tour

This fascinating journey starts in Bataan, where tour participants will walk the first kilometer of the Death March, take a boat to Corregidor, 27 miles out in Manila Bay, to see the blasted skeletal remains of the mile-long barracks, theater, hospital, and officers’ quarters, as well as explore the labyrinth of tunnels carved deep in the rock that once sheltered embattled American forces, and discover the details of the Battle of Manila, where it all happened.
