Description
 
As the siege of Stalingrad was the ultimate scene of carnage at the E. Front in WW2, the battle of Okinawa was the bloodiest of the Pacific war. Almost the entire Japanese kamikaze effort of the war was directed against the Amer. at Okinawa. At the beginning of the battle on April 1, 1945, over one million Amer., Japanese & Okinawans were centered on the small Pacific island; by June 23, when the Japanese commanders committed “seppuku” (ritual suicide), 250,000 civilians & soldiers were dead. More people died during the battle of Okinawa than in the bombings of Hiroshima & Nagasaki combined. This was the last major campaign of WW2 & the largest land-sea-air engagement. The stories of 3 individuals run through the entire account.
