Russia wanted a warm water port on the Pacific Ocean while Japan feared growing encroachment from Russia into Asia.

Between 60,000 and 80,000 American and Filipino soldiers surrendered and were marched around 60 to 69 miles - most were beaten, abused, or killed. Named the Bataan Death March, it was later declared to be a war crime.
