"This historical record dwells on the guerrilla resistance movements in Mindanao, the merits of which are crystalized in the cohesively concrete organization, activities and accomplishments of the Tenth Military District, under the command of Col. Wendell W. Fertig ... Some mention is also made of the intelligence coverage for the 9th Military District, comprising the provinces of Leyte and Samar ... This composite history is intended to present an impartial and factual picture of the Guerrilla Resistance Movement in Mindanao and to preserve in more or less permanent form the historical record of the Tenth Military District from the beginning of the first sporadic resistance movement to the formal date Mindanao was declared liberated by Gen. MacArthur."--
