The Battle of the Philippines was the invasion of the Philippines by Japan in 1941-42 and the defense of the islands by Filipino and United States forces. Although the result was a Japanese victory, the perseverance of the defenders delayed Japanese attacks on other areas and assisted Allied counterattacks in the South West Pacific Area, from late 1942.
