Dare & Live, An Untold World War Ii Story Of Guerrilla Resistance Against The Japanese Army In Negros Islands, Philippines

M/Sgt Jorge G. Herrera, Jr. discovered just what kind of a soldier he was when the Imperial Japanese Forces invaded Negros Islands in the Philippines during World War II. His heroic tale can now be told in the exciting new book, “Dare & Live.”

The superior Imperial Japanese Forces overrun the spirited defenses that the combined United States and Philippine Commonwealth Government Armies put up in the battles for Bataan and the Island fortress of Corrigedor. The US-Philippines defenses crumbled against the onslaught of superiority of numbers of the Japanese soldiers, the naval and aerial bombardments. The valiant defenders had only one option: surrender. The Japanese Forces went on mopping operations on the more than 1,700 islands and islets of the Philippine Archiepelago. The Island defenders under orders of the Military High Command in Manila, the capital city of the Philippines, gave up resistance.

In Negros Islands of central Philippines, M/Sgt Jorge G. Herrera vowed he would never surrender to the Japanese Army; so he gathered 3 Filipinos and they started the recruiment and training of other Guerrilla Soldiers. The Japanese Army cordoned Bacolod City, the capital of Negros islands where the US and Filipino surrenderees were imprisoned. The Japanese soldiers guarded every entrances and exits of the City, still M/Sgt Herrera escaped from the heavily-guarded City under the very noses of the Japanese Army sentinels.

It is worth reading the whole story of Dare & Live and obtain the backgrounds that equipped M/Sgt Herrera in his decision of fighting the whole Japanese Army that occupied Negros Islands for three long years of World War II.

It is a wonder how M/Sgt Herrera secured arms and ammunitions when the Japanese Army divested all US and Filipino Soldiers upon their surrender, suspected as non-surrenderees and killed anyone caught in possession of weapons. Herrera went on to recruit and train over a hundred soldiers and armed most of them. He established a Bivouac at the mountain sides of Negros Islands and equipped his hideout with telephone communication for fast intelligence. He staged many ambushes against the Japanese soldiers and was an only Filipino Guerrilla Leader who captured, alive, 21 Japanese soldiers in one ambush encounter. To try to capture him, the Japanese army even hired a Filipina Spy and sent her on a secret mission to entrap M/Sgt Herrera. Read how Herrera discovered the plot of the Japanese Army against him, before it could unfold.

How the Filipino Guerrilla Fighters fought the Japanese soldiers in Negros Islands during the three long years of World War II, was akin to how the Terrorist mounted resistance against the United States Army in Iraq and Afghanistan. It is of immense importance that a Superior Military Power should take cognizance of what the enemies on the opposite side of the war zone could utilize to mount stiff opposition and inflict maximum destruction.

Dare & Live is a profile in courage, ingenuity, and innovation worthy of study and emulation times of personal crisis.

The lessons of World War II was true 50 years ago; they still ring true today!

1/3- Secret Japanese Aircraft of WWII

History Channel – Starting in the 1930′s, Japanese aircraft designers made incredible strides, and by the time hostilities broke out, the Imperial Air Force had some of the most sophisticated and effective planes in the world. SECRET JAPANESE AIRCRAFT OF WORLD WAR II traces the development of the Japanese industry and its famous creations, like the Nakajima Ki-43 Oscar and the Mitsubishi A6M Zero. But the program also exposes the frantic, top-secret programs to produce weapons that would have made these legendary planes seem tame by comparison. With the help of some of the world’s foremost aviation historians, HISTORY UNDERCOVER® reveals how, at the end of the war, Japan was close to unveiling a new generation of rocket and jet-powered planes that could have turned the tide of the conflict.

Japanese Internment Camps During WWII – Movie

A collection of audio and visual clips during WWII and the Japanese Internment Camps. I made this just for fun for one of my classes. These clips range from random video clips, propaganda, and old documentaries of the time during the Japanese Internment Camps. A good collection could be found at Note: These films do not show the entire picture of Japanese Internment Camps, nor does it capture the despair and turmoil of the Japanese people. Since some of these clips were taken from propaganda films, notice the word choice from narrator and even music. Also note that some films were mixed with other narrator voices that better described the situation.

Fabricated Japanese history in WW2 by Japan’s Asahi Shimbun

The Asahi Shimbun, most influential (left-biased) paper in Japan, started campaign based on the book in 1991. In this book, he wrote that he had hunted comfort women in Korea. But later, he admited that he invetned stories to sell the book. Prof. Yoshimi Yoshiaki (吉見義明) of Chuo University, who appeared in the previous post as one of the key persons in the “sex slave” propaganda. Later Prof. Yoshimi Yoshiaki admitted there was no evidence about Japanese Army forced Chinese and Korean women into “sex slave”. but left-leaning Asahi shimbun splashed “coercion of the Japanese Army” on the front of the paper.Despite Yoshimi Yoshiaki admitted His lies. As a matter of fact, in the notification “discovered” by Prof. Yoshimi, the Japanese military authority ordered its troops in the Chinese frontline to carefully choose appropriate brothel managers to prevent them from recruiting comfort women by any brutal manner, as a few pimps in mainland Japan were lately arrested for such cases. Asahi shimbun made trumped-up story and sprended to the world. “Comfort women problem” is a propaganda made by Asahi Shimbun(Japanese(!) newspaper). It has ended in Japan when Seiji Yoshida ran away from the scene years ago. Today, most Japanese don’t believe that. Asahi shimbun made fabricated facts about “the Nanking incident. Honda Katsuichi “本多勝一” is an Asahi’s journalist and author book named” Travels in China(中国の旅)” and 南京への道 (Road to Nanjing)who coined the term ‘hundred head

Japanese WW2 jet fighters – shinden Nakajima designers Kazuo Ohno and Kenichi Matsumura laid out an aircraft that bore a strong but superficial resemblance to the Me 262. (震電, “Magnificent Lightning”) kikka (中島橘花, “Orange Blossom”) fugaku (富岳or 富嶽, “Mount Fuji”) full vid http advanced japanese warplanes 1945 The Kyūshū J7W1 Shinden (震電, “Magnificent Lightning”) fighter was a World War II Japanese propeller driven aircraft that was built in a canard design. The wings were attached to the tail section and stabilizers were on the front. The propeller was also in the rear, in a pusher configuration. It was expected to be a highly maneuverable interceptor, but only two were finished before the end of war. Plans were also drawn up for a jet-powered version (J7W2), but this never left the drawing board. The J7W was developed for the Imperial Japanese Navy as a specific response to the B-29 Superfortress raids on the Japanese homeland. It was to be operated from land bases. The canard concept was tested first by building a number of gliders with this layout, designated MXY6.

World War 2 and Pearl Harbor – The Internment of the Japanese

On December 7th 1941 Japanese forces attacked the American Naval base of Pearl Harbor in Hawaii, which effectively brought America into WW2. After, the Japanese citizens of the West Coast United States were “relocated” as a matter of what was thought to be national safety. These internment camps are the subject of much debate. Many compare them to the Concentration Camps of the Nazi regime, but others refer to them quite mildly as “summer camps.” By examining the autobiography Farewell to Manzanar one can clearly see these camps were far from a vacation, and by examining the government’s post war response to relocation camps one can see it is thought by most to be a blemish on modern American history. Naturally there are revisionist historians who argue in defense of the internment camps, but the relocation and internment of the Japanese during WW2 was not justified.

Immediate following the Pearl Harbor, there was fear that the Japanese Empire was planning a full scale Naval attack on the West Coast of the United States. This suspicion lead the American government to unconstitutionally relocate and detain 120,000 Japanese. Of these approximately sixty two percent were American citizens. The sentiments were that citizenship alone does not guarantee loyalty to the United States. Jeanne Wakatsuki and her family were non-US citizens and since her father had a fishing boat, the FBI singled him out as a possible Japanese loyalist. While it is easy to look back at a historical situation with 20/20 vision, if one separates oneself from the known outcome of the war, it is easy to understand the suspicions of the Japanese people. With an extremely strong Navy, an attack on the Western United States by the Japanese would have devastating effects on the country but it is a completely different monster all together to detain people, for years, on mere suspicions. In fact, Jeanne Wakatsuki is only seven years old when she is first and she does not even speak Japanese. How can the detainment of a seven year old that does not speak the language and does not have contact with her ancestors in Japan be justified?

In the 80′s the American Government established a commission to research the matter. The commission determined that the internment was “unjust and motivated by racism rather than real military necessity.” WW2 was fought on two fronts, the European and the Pacific. Although Germans and Italians who were non-US citizens were also relocated, those who were US citizens but just of Italian or European descent were not affected. This fact alone proves that the Japanese were racially profiled just on account of their Asian appearance. The Civil Liberties Act of 1988 gave twenty thousand dollars to each surviving detainee as reparations for their hardship. Most can look back on the period and feel regret and embarrassment for what happened, in such a modern era. However, we are going through similar times right now. The Japanese internment is a case of racial profiling, which, since September 11th 2001 has been the subject of much political debate in this country. Shortly after the attacks, most people found no problem with the racial profiling of Arabs during airport security believing that it was a matter of national security and a preemptive measure to prevent another terrorist attack. Will Americans look back at these times forty years in the future, just as was done with the Japanese internment, and regret their beliefs?
