|The United States WW2 Naval Invasion Homepage
Just as the new year of 1945 was starting, United States Naval forces based in Mindoro
were on the way to help liberate Marinduque from the Japanese occupiers. Here you will
be able to read the actual day to day operations involved in that undertaking as well as
Torpedo Patrol Boat operations based in Marinduque involving the liberation of other parts
of the Philippines. Where possible, pictures have been located of the actual naval craft that
served in and around Marinduque during this time.
Also check out the Terrain Handbook that was used as a basis for selecting the landing
zone in Buena Vista.
