22gigantes.com - One of the bloodiest battles in Marine Corps history, Operation Stalemate, as Peleliu was called, was overshadowed by the Normandy landings. It was also, in time, judged by most historians to have been unnecessary; though it had been conceived to protect MacArthur's flank in the Philippines, the US fleet's carrier raids had eliminated Japanese airpower, rendering Peleliu irrelevant. Nevertheless, the horrifying number of casualties sustained there foreshadowed the rest of the war: Rather than fight to the death on the beach, the Japanese would now defend in depth and bleed the Americans white. Drawing extensively on personal interviews, the Marine Corps History Division's vast oral history and photographic collection, and many never-before-published sources, this book gives us a new and harrowing vision of what really happened at Peleliu - and what it meant. Working closely with two of the First Regiment's battalion commanders - Ray Davis and Russ Honsowetz - Marine Corps veteran and military historian Dick Camp recreates the battle as it was experienced by the men and their officers.
Best Review of Last Man Standing: The 1st Marine Regiment On Peleliu, September 15-21, 1944:
Most helpful customer reviews 0 of 0 people found the following review helpful. Raw and Honest By Eagletree This is by far the most raw and realistic account of Peleliu I've read, and all were bone-chilling. These guys deserved so much praise for their ability to still move forward and obey when even their top officers had lost it. Most Pacific battles were horrible, but that word is somehow too weak for Peleliu.The one thing this book does, is provide the brutally honest view of the management of the operation. It leaves me scratching my head concerning the conclusions I'd held for so many years. Really worth reading no matter how many accounts of Peleliu you've read.It's not to be read quickly. It took me far longer to read than for a normal book of this size, which seems odd given that it is a blow by blow account. But for each "blow" it gives the background of the intense, almost irrationally frenetic, need to "get it over with" that the levels of command had going on. 3 of 3 people found the following review helpful. American Courage. By Robert Mitchell Every American school kid should be read parts of this book, so that they know of the courage, bravery, and devotion to duty of the American Marines, The savagery of the fighting between the fanatical Japanese and the Marines surpassed anything in the European battles with the exception of the fighting between the Germans and the Russians.I remember as a young man, living in Melbourne in 1941, meeting young American Marines on leave from the battles of Gluadacanal, and being impressed with those fine young "Yanks". Americans should be very proud of their Marine Corps soldiers, and the thousands who died for their country. 2 of 2 people found the following review helpful. Impossible overcome! By Allen L. Shelton Accurate picture of horrible combat in WWII. Hot, dirty, and digging foxholes was impossible in the Coral covered island. Conditions were deplorable but the Marines and Soldiers triumphed. Strong insight into all levels of personnel. Excellent well written book. See all 47 customer reviews...
