The invasion of the Philippines had three objectives:
- To prevent the use of the Philippines as an advance base of operations by American forces,
- To acquire staging areas and supply bases to enhance operations against the Netherlands East Indies, and
- To secure the lines of communication between occupied areas in the south and the Japanese Home Islands.
