Rock Force: The American Paratroopers who took back Corregidor and Exacted MacArthur’s Revenge on Japan

Tuesday, December 1, 2020

On December 1, 2020, the MacArthur Memorial will host a virtual event featuring Kevin Maurer, author of the new book Rock Force: The American Paratroopers who took back Corregidor and Extracted MacArthur’s Revenge on Japan. The airborne assault on the island fortress of Corregidor by the 503rd parachute infantry was one of the most daring missions of World War II. The story of the “Rock Force” has been the subject of many books, but Kevin Maurer’s focus on the tension-filled stories of the paratroopers who fought the battle day by day is a fresh look at the campaign. A study in courage, it is also a reminder of the great sacrifices made by the combatants, both American and Japanese. FREE – registration is required!
