B-class, really?[edit]

Hey, this article lacks a lot of conflicts involving Philippine history(ex. Philippine revolts against Spain, Islamic Insurgency in the Philippines, New People's Army insurgency). Can anyon improve it?--23prootie 03:30, 3 July 2006 (UTC)

Be bold!. Edit and improve as you see fit. :) --Noypi380 10:49, 3 July 2006 (UTC)

Needed: Japanese occupation of the Philippines (1941-1945)[edit]

Hi. The Military history of the Philippines during World War II article is very sketchy and on its page there is a red link for an article about the Japanese occupation of the Philippines (1941-1945) a very important subject that is still needed as there are already articles about: the Japanese occupation of Burma; Japanese occupation of Hong Kong; Japanese occupation of Indonesia; Japanese occupation of Malaya, North Borneo and Sarawak and Japanese occupation of Singapore, so this gap is glaring. Anyone with and interest or expertise in this topic is welcome to start writing it. Thank you, IZAK (talk) 11:34, 28 December 2007 (UTC)

World War I[edit]

According to one history book, the colonial government donated one destroyer and one submarine to the US Navy during the Great War. Can anyone out there name these vessels? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 124.107.159.125 (talk) 10:10, 2 May 2008 (UTC)

See Filipinos in the French military and Filipinos WW1 US Military Service for additional information about Filipinos in World War 1. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 124.107.159.125 (talk) 09:50, 11 November 2008 (UTC)

The site about Filipinos in US military service during World War I, which has information about Filipinos in the Hawaii National Guard, is interesting but does not include any information about the Philippine National Guard. It should be recalled that during WW1 the Philippines and Hawaii were equal in status: they were both American colonies. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 121.96.178.84 (talk) 10:07, 25 November 2008 (UTC)

Regarding the 23 Filipinos who served in the French Foreign Legion during the Great War: It is likely that they all served in Europe during the war, because the only deployment of the Foreign Legion outside Europe in the 1914-1918 period was in Morocco. Almost all of the Legionnaires deployed in North Africa at that time came from countries of the Central Powers, because they obviously could not be expected to fight against their own side. By the way, these 23 Filipinos outnumber those Filipinos who served in the American Expeditionary Force, who numbered about 10.

The Philippines during Vietnam War[edit]

Was the "Philippine Civil Affairs Assistance Group" an alternate name for the Philippine Civic Action Group, Vietnam, or the name doesn't exist at all? Kevzspeare (talk) 06:04, 11 October 2009 (UTC)

Blanking of the "Philippine Revolution (1896-1898)" section[edit]

I've blanked this section. It was supported by a link to an archived article at http://web.archive.org/web/20060105090248/http://www.ncca.gov.ph/culture&arts/cularts/heritage/research/research-history.htm. A live version of that article is at http://www.ncca.gov.ph/about-culture-and-arts/articles-on-c-n-a/article.php?igm=2&i=190. The section was a near-copypaste of the page at that URL, with some apparent not-WP:NPOV and apparent WP:original research changes (e.g., "charged with sedition and treason" changed to "falsely charged with sedition and treason", "$400,000" changed to "$800,000", perhaps others).

Battle of Mactan Miseducation[edit]

The so called "Battle of Mactan" was not a war against foreign aggressors as pop historians love to point out. It was a "battle" between tribes: that of Rajah Humabon and Datu Zula, against Lapu-lapu. Rajah Humabon asked his newly found "allies", the Spaniards, to attack Lapu-Lapu's tribe and in the process help in subjugating them.

This was never a battle for freedom, it was merely a tribal war wherein one side was assisted by the Spaniards.--Arius1988 (talk) 04:34, 9 February 2016 (UTC)
