Summary:
They came ashore on tiny coral atolls spread across the South Seas. They had to fight for every yard they earned, and at each stop they left behind comrades-in-arms. But they persevered in some of the bloodiest battles ever fought, and helped bring World War II to an end. From Wake Island to Okinawa, Guadalcanal to Iwo Jima, THE FIGHTING LEATHERNECKS OF WWII is a stirring chronicle of bravery and conquest, a step-by-step look at the costly battles that pushed the Japanese back toward their homeland. Filled with dramatic footage and interviews with the soldiers who were there, it captures the horror and heroism of one of the most famous campaigns in military history. Watch as the Marines creep across barren atolls, burning every inch in front of them to chase out the dug-in Japanese defenders. Listen to decorated soldiers tell of their time in hell. And reflect on the stunning cost refusing to surrender, the Japanese lost virtually every man, while thousands of Marines lost their lives in the slow advance on Japan.
