Recklessness and caution were oddly combined in the Campaign. Thousands were killed by Shell bursts from defense guns and hundreds of other japanese piled into american barbed wire and died under machine gun fire. The japanese might have avoided the entire costly operation if they had pressed their attacks late in december at the right time. They might have smashed the american filipino forces before they Ever reached the mountainous Peninsula. Early in the in Vasion they could have landed on Bataan then virtually unmanned behind Gen. Douglas Macarthur forces and blocked the approaches. Failed to see move. Instead they moved cautiously and lost the Opportunity.

Began dec. 21. The withdrawal from North began dec. 21, the Day the japanese landed on the Eastern Shore of lingayen Gulf. Thuc enemy advanced quickly despite terrific losses and threatened to turn Macarthur left flank. Some american units were trapped on the Mountain Road leading to Baguio the summer capital. Part of these succeeded later in rejoining their units. Others took to the mountains where they have been fighting in guerrilla style Ever since. The japanese never attempted to land on the Southern Shore of lingayen Gulf where Macarthur a main defences were concentrated. Their main forces including tanks was diverted by the 26th filipino scout cavalry. The 26th fought the japanese stubbornly for five Days gradually withdrawing to the South and East. Destroy War supplies. This Brilliant delaying action gave Lieut. Gen. Jonathan Wainwright then second in command time to draw his army Back from lingayen Gulf toward Bataan with nearly All its guns and supplies. What be carried was destroyed.
