US forces on the Philippines were stranded by the Japanese victory at Pearl Harbor. Battle-hardened Japanese troops invaded the islands, forcing the defenders into a retreat that ended in a hopeless siege. Thousands of US and Filipino soldiers were taken captive when US forces surrendered.



  • The billboards at the baseball field are written in Tagalog. The billboard with the pineapple translates to say "Village Bazaar". The billboard with the man and bottle translates to say "Effortless Living! San Jose Drink!"
  • The Japanese radio set at the baseball field as recycled asset from Medal of Honor: Frontline.
  • This is the only level in the game to feature an M3 Stuart tank.
  • If the game is played in Co-op, all of the American NPCs, such as Gunny and Donnie, are absent, and instead of you protecting the tank on its way to the truck, one of the players instead controls the tank.
  • Before the Battle of the Philippines the USAFFE or United States Armed Forces in the Far East was manned by 14,000 American Soldiers in the Philippines was bolstered by 16,000 Philippine Scouts which was under the orders of General Douglas McArthur.
  • On the mission's storyboard, the brother is Steve McCoy instead of Donnie Griffin.
  • The place Bataan is pronounced "Ba-ta-an" whereas most Americans would say, "Ba-tan".
  • The terms "Boondock" and "Boondockers" comes from the Filipino word "Bundok" (pronounced "Bun-duk") meaning "Mountain".
  • The likeness of the church and the courtyard was used to create the multiplayer map, Calumpit Chaos.
