MichaelU and I are once again off on one of our little PTO adventures. We went to the Palaus in 2011 and we'll be heading to the Marianas for the last week of this coming March. We've been doing our homework the best we've could and have a general overview of the campaign. We're now looking for more detailed information to help us after we've hit the beaches.

(We will be there a full week and spending our time among Guam, Saipan, and Tinian.)

We currently have:

Saipan & Tinian 1944: Piercing the Japanese Empire (Campaign)[Osprey]

The Liberation of Guam: 21 July-10 August 1944 [Harry Gailrey]

The Recapture of Guam [Major O. Robert Lodge, USMC]

Guide Historic Treasures Guam [by the National Park Service]


If there was any place to come for recommendations, we figured it would be here.

Also, if anyone has been there recently or has any advice, it would be greatly appreciated!

(We do plan to share the photos here when we get back; we are literally counting down the days till we depart!)

A flick through the "Green Books" from Center of Military History or the Marine Official History (both available at Hyperwar) could help and they have lots of maps.
