The Japanese began conducting aerial assaults on American forces in the Philippines and positions on Hong Kong and Wake Island. In the Philippines, General Douglas MacArthur, commanding United States Army Forces in the Far East, began making preparations to defend from the inevitable Japanese invasion. This included calling up numerous Filipino reserve divisions.

Though MacArthur initially sought to defend the entire island of Luzon, plans were changed to withdraw to the highly defensible ground of the Bataan Peninsula, west of Manila, where it would hold out until relieved by the US Navy. Due to the losses sustained at Pearl Harbor, this was unlikely to occur. In addition to the casualties, USFIP lost 12,000 American and 63,000 Filipino soldiers as prisoners.

Though suffering from combat wounds, disease, and malnutrition, these prisoners were marched north to prisoner of war camps in what became known as the Bataan Death March. Lacking food and water, prisoners were beaten or bayoneted if they fell behind or were unable to walk. Thousands of USFIP prisoners died before reaching the camps. Following the war, Homma was convicted of war crimes relating to the march and was executed on April 3, 1946.
