It focuses on the large unit urban combat operations of the U.S. Army XIV Corps. This month long battle was the only time in the Second World War that U.S. forces fought the Japanese inside a major city. The study evaluates the relationship between the strategic and operational importance of modern cities and U.S. tactical doctrine for seizing a defended major city. From this historical analysis of the XIV Corps battle for Manila, we can derive planning and operational considerations for likely corps and division level urban combat today."
