By Sword and Fire: The Destruction of Manila in World War II, 3 February – 3 March 1945 by Alfonso J. Aluit

Title: By Sword and Fire: The Destruction of Manila in World War II, 3 February – 3 March 1945
Author: Alfonso J. Aluit
Synopsis: While this work is concerned with the destruction of Manila towards the end of World War II in the Pacific, it begins with a history of Manila and a reconstruction in words of its physical condition up to February 1945. It is our aim insofar as is practicable what actually was destroyed, not only the physical structured and material treasures of a city 400 years old, but also the way of life, the social organization of the people. Only if one understood and appreciated what it was that perished would the loss truly make sense.
