Description:
Once Mydans was pulled from the European theater in late 1944, he reunited with Gen. Douglas MacArthur in the Pacific. After the landing at Luzon, MacArthur's troops made their way into Bataan. Almost three years after Gen. Edward King surrendered Bataan to the Japanese, American troops and Filipino guerrillas recaptured the peninsula. According to <i>LIFE</i>, after many days of battle, General MacArthur surveyed the Japanese dead and issued a communique: <i>So far as can be found, no living Japanese soldier is now on the peninsula</i> (<i>LIFE</i>, Mar 5, 1945).
