Fighting on Leyte continues slow and vicious.
My own opinion is that the land fighting, at no time, has been as serious as communiquéswould make you believe.
The whole Leyte expedition had been endangered.
MacArthur radioed that we should do everything to prevent Nips moving toward Surigao. We also began limited offensive action against all Nip garrisons.
Our time of trial and triumph is at hand.
