A four-part History Channel documentary. Part I is here:

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!


After 16 years, Civ II still has me in it's clutches LOL!!!
Now CIV IV has me in it's evil clutches!
