Yes, I've seen that too about Manila.Funny I learned something on a doco about WWII last night that Manila suffered the most damage of any city during the war after Warsaw. Never expected that.
It could be that they are talking about damage during the actual battle.
Whereas while Warsaw was extremely badly damaged during battle, when the battle was over Hitler then sent in demolition teams to level it to the ground. As that program I mentioned said, Warsaw was rebuilt after the war, often using postcards as their guide in the rebuilding.
