'The Warriors of Freedom Have Landed' flier

Title

'The Warriors of Freedom Have Landed' flier

Description

A flier issued by the Allied Forces during World War II after the return of General Douglas MacArthur to the Philippine Islands in 1944. The flier was probably airdropped to the citizens of the Philippine Islands soon after General MacArthur landed in October, 1944. It features instructions to stay away from certain areas between the dates December 15th and January 8th. The instructions state to leave the beaches and head inland as soon as Allied Forces appear on the beaches. The flier is numbered '7F6'. This is one item from a scrapbook of propaganda leaflets and related materials that was compiled by the Psychological Warfare Branch of the Allied Forces in the Southwest Pacific Area during World War II. The scrapbook belonged to Colonel Karl F. Baldwin of the United States Army, who helped establish the propaganda program. It contains approximately 200 pieces of propaganda, mostly in Japanese, that were intended for distribution in the Philippines, Japan, and other nearby areas.
