Filipinos have fought alongside U.S. troops since the occupation of the Philippines in 1898. Christopher Capozzola gave the history of this partnership and described the importance of a Pacific base for U.S. military expansion into Asia. He is the author of the book, "Bound by War: How the United States and the Philippines Built America's First Pacific Century." This program was hosted by the Wilson Center and the National History Center, who also provided the video.
