A four-part History Channel documentary. Part I is here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Y1grcyj_eo

As a student of the Marines' War in the Pacific, I recommend reading "With the Old Breed at Peleliu and Okinawa" by Eugene B. Sledge. Even if you're not a Pacific War enthusiast, this is a great book about the view of war from the front line.

Thanks for the link.

My Dad was an army grunt in the Pacific so am always interested re: this seemingly under appreciated theater of operations.

Thank you for the link. I will make sure to watch it soon.

And I will definitely try to get my hands on the book you recommended.

While watching that video I kept thinking of the combat reporters with their cameras. That had to been an experience for them too!
