Known as the Victor III operations, the Allied Forces commenced naval and air bombardment concentrated at Puerto Princesa to dislodge Japanese defenders in the area. Tasked to liberate Palawan was the 186th Regimental Combat Team (RCT) under the 41st Infantry who landed in Puerto Princesa Bay unopposed as the Japanese Forces retreated towards the hills north of the city. The Allied Forces, with the aid of the Filipino guerrillas, was able to neutralize most of the fighting capability of the Japanese by the end of March. The Filipino guerrillas played a big part in liberating Palawan. The united five guerilla units in Palawan known as the Palawan Special Battalion under the command of Major Pablo Muyco was able to provide intelligence to the Allied Intelligence Bureau and the 6th Military District before the liberation. The unit also conducted active organized resistance to the Japanese starting in January 1944.
