Description
 
The gut-wrenching and ultimately triumphant story of the Marines’ most ferocious -- yet largely forgotten -- battle of WW2. Between Sept. 15 and Oct. 15, 1944, the 1st Marine Div. suffered more than 6,500 casualties fighting on a hellish little coral island in the Pacific. Peleliu was the setting for one of the most savage struggles of modern times, a true killing ground that has been all but forgotten -- until now. Drawing on interviews with Peleliu vets, Sloan’s gripping narrative weaves together the experiences of the men who were there, producing a vivid and unflinching tableau of the nightmare of Peleliu. “Emotionally moving and gripping in its depictions of combat.” “Rescues the Corp’s. bloodiest battle from obscurity and does honor to the Marines who fought it.” Photos.
