MacArthur's Return to the Philippines

Navy guns bombard the beaches of Leyte, and carrier-based planes bomb the island defenses, as General MacArthur makes good on his promise to the Filippino people: 

I shall return.

This clip, from the U.S. National Archives, shows the start of an amphibious assault.  In addition to MacArthur, we see General Wainwright and Admiral Halsey.
