GREEN SHADED AREAS represent the location of Japanese forces on Luzon island in early (about
February)1945. Luzon was first invaded at the Lingayen area by US/Filippino forces on January 9th, 1945. In
this case, it is possible that some Imperial Army troop movements towards the northern Luzon mountain
region strong-holds had probably already commenced.
NOTE: The above map was printed in 1945 by the National Geographic Society. Some towns or areas may
no longer exist or be known as different names on modern day maps (and vise-versa).
