The raid occurred on May 31, 1945, and was part of the larger Allied campaign to neutralize Japanese military and industrial targets in the Pacific. The raid involved a total of 96 B-24 Liberator bombers, which dropped approximately 3,800 bombs on the city. The bombing caused widespread damage to buildings, homes, and infrastructure, and resulted in the deaths of an estimated 3,000 to 5,000 people, many of whom were civilians.

The Taihoku Air Raid was carried out by the USAAF’s 5th Air Force, which was based in the Philippines at the time. The mission was led by Major General Ennis C. Whitehead, who had previously overseen the air campaign in the Philippines. The raid targeted several key military and industrial sites in Taihoku, including the Japanese army headquarters, the Taiwan Governor’s Palace, the Taiwan Army Aviation School, and the Taiwan Arsenal. The bombing also caused significant damage to civilian areas, including residential neighborhoods and markets. Many of the victims of the raid were women and children, as well as elderly and disabled people who were unable to flee the bombing. There were also reports of Japanese soldiers executing civilians who were caught in the open during the attack.
The raid was controversial both at the time and in subsequent years, with some arguing that it was a necessary military operation while others condemned it as a war crime. In 1995, on the 50th anniversary of the raid, the Taiwan government held a commemoration ceremony to honor the victims and express condolences to their families. Today, the Taihoku Air Raid is remembered as a tragic event in the history of Taiwan and is often cited as an example of the devastating impact of war on civilian populations.
