Diary of Albert E. Holland

December 14, 1944

[17]

Dec. 14th – Air raid! the first since November 25th – And an unusual type of raid – 8-10 planes over Manila all the time – Bombing and strafing, but apparently with the object, of preventing planes from coming up, transportation from functioning and troops from moving. Let’s hope there is a landing – it looks that way

Air-raid alarm all night tonight – two raids between 6 -11 PM – We are completely blacked out – I mean completely – Not a light showing anywhere in Manila – the Japanese in the Commandant’s Office are very upset and nervous.
