Summary
During World War II the Japanese defenders of Peleliu had dug a network of caves that enabled them to survive the bombardment by U.S. ships with few losses, and when the Marines came ashore on September 15, 1944, they met with ferocious resistance. The battle for the island in the Caroline chain was meant to take days but lasted two months, at the cost of over 13,500 lives. Graphic combat footage captures the advance of the U.S. forces, while Marine and Japanese survivors recall the long fight. Military experts detail the shifting strategies of the battle and examine the objectives and cost
