    Intense Bombardment by Rocket Firing Craft preceded the successful storming by U.S. troops under Gen. Walter Kreuger of Japanese held Mindoro, one of the larger Philippine islands on December 15, 1944. Of this operation General MacArthur said. “It will enable us to dominate sea and air routes which reach to the China coast.” Mindoro is 75 miles south of Manila, capital of Luzon, on which landings were made three weeks later.
