Caption: Wrecked Army coast-defense gun on Corregidor, photographed after its conquest by the Japanese, May 1942. Copied from the Japanese book: "Philippine Expeditionary Force," published in 1943. Original Japanese caption: "While we were still on Bataan we persuaded the enemy to give up their so-called impenetrable fortress, but they foolishly sent back countless numbers of shells at us. We had no alternative but to deal them a mighty blow and, for the first time, realized the powers we possessed. Then it was too late."
