Peleliu

September 15, 1944.

MacArthur demanded this wretched island be taken… That’s all I want to say about that. So many violent deaths.

This is just a Hollywood movie (“The Pacific” by Hanks/Spielberg). No Hollywood movie can ever “show” war.  I cannot imagine what it truly must have been like.

(Editor’s Note: My apologies but when I try and post with my phone Word App like here, things get “messed up”.)

  1. We could never imagine what those men went through. And it’s very understandable where the saying, “There are no atheists in a foxhole.” came from. I imagine it would apply to the men in those amphibious vehicles coming to shore as well.
