Opening his study of the Japanese Occupation with a brief survey of Japan's rise to power, the author sketches the events of 1941, which ultimately led to Pearl Harbor, with the bold strokes of a trained painter. He narrates and describes the steps taken by the American and Philippine governments to prepare the Filipinos for a total war that nobody liked but which everybody feared would come with an impact of tremendous proportions. Basing his account of the war years mostly on primary sources and on his personal observation and experience, Agoncillo portrays in vivid narrative the fall of Bataan and Corregidor, the passion and calvary of the USAFFE, and the tragic life at Camp O'Donnel. Volume one of the study delineates the rise of Japan to a great power, from the war with China in 1894 to the so-called "China incident" in 1937; the diplomatic maneuvers that failed to prevent Pearl Harbor; the debacle at Bataan and the reduction of Corregidor; the Japanese attempts to fashion a Filipino government responsive to their needs; the Japanese impositions, severity, and unfriendly conduct toward the Filipinos, to the flight of the Laurel government and the return of the liberation forces.

University Professor Agoncillo was Chair of the UP History Department. Author of over twenty books, Agoncillo’s fame extended beyond the classroom and lecture hall.
