Exiled Government by Rufino C Pabico
Book DescriptionDuring the Second World War, the government of the Commonwealth of the Philippines was evacuated from the island fortress of Corregidor to the still unoccupied islands of the Visayas and the southern island of Mindanao, then to Australia and finally, to the United States. From May 1942 through October 1944, this exiled government became "the symbol of the past and the hope of the future." This handful of men, led by the ailing nationalist, Commonwealth President Manuel Luis Quezon, sustained from afar the morale and the faith in America by the Filipinos in Japanese-occupied Philippines, a significant factor in the failure of Japan's Greater East Asia Co-Prosperity Sphere Program in the Philippines. Long considered a mere footnote in the history of Philippine-American relations, the two and a half years of efforts by the exiled government proved to be a defining period in the evolving relationship between the two nations.
