    Beginning in 1976 Time Life Books started what was probably one of their most ambitious book series the entire history of World War II For seven years high quality hardbound books were delivered to our house in the mail I recall the delivery being quite an event for me and I would usually beat my dad to the books There are thirty nine books in the series Each book examines a different aspect of the war Everything from the Japanese home front to the neutral nations in Europe to the liberation of the Philippines Considering the size of the war it was the only way to do it Each book has 208 pages and is handsomely illustrated with numerous maps, photos and pictorial essays Some years there would be as many as five books released while other years would only see two or three though the tempo picked up in the later years I recall my father started the series in 1977 and he received the last books my junior year in college 1988 As I stated earlier the books are high quality and they have held up over the years both physically and in terms of the writing They are not revisionist works nor are they trying to prove a radical or controversial thesis They go down easily and are intended for the casual reader or the middle school and high school student doing research for their four page report obviously before the Internet If one is looking for a highly detailed account that shows day to day movements of battalions, regiments and divisions then the Time Life WWII books are not the books to look to However ,if one knows little to nothing about The Battle of Britain, the Italian Campaign or the bombing campaign against the Japanese home islands then look no further It s also interesting to note that many of the photos that appeared in the books had not been seen for several decades at that time when this series started in 1977 I can recall in the advertising this fact was trumpeted loudly In Return To The Philippines I counted 160 photos and ten excellent maps Not once did I find myself trying to figure out the described events in relation to the physical layout of the Philippine islands Like the other books in the series RTTP is not a bolts and all account of the campaign It provides an overall account of the ten month campaign Much of the account talks about regiments and divisions interspersed with accounts of individual heroism on both sides and the suffering that the civilians experienced Not surprisingly generals and admirals receive a fair amount of attention in this type of history Nevertheless the book is a good start for somebody who want to learn about the campaign In my case I am familiar overall with the campaign, but the only events that I have read in depth about is the role of the Philippine guerillas, the retaking of Corregidor Island and the huge naval battle of Leyte Gulf I had never covered the invasions of the various islands and the vicious fighting for Manila City Also I had no idea that the Marines provided ground based air support for the Army Truth be told I had long been under the impression that once the Army troops got on the ground it was an all army show with the Marine pilots steaming away on their carriers I was disabused of that idea by this book All in all this is a good big picture account of the Philippine Campaigns according to the U.S Army there wee three campaigns Leyte, Luzon and the Southern Philippines It s an easy read designed for both the general reader and the specialized military history buff who is at the start of in depth research I have yet to come across any of the Time Life books that I can t recommend Good solid non controversial history.

    Bought this Life Time series in the early 1980 s on WWII, a volume came to the house every 2 or 3 months so I could take my reading It was very informative and enjoyable read, I still use it for reference.
