Storyline

The 1st Marine division is now on Okinawa and coming ever closer to defeating the enemy. The weather and the heat are still proving to be difficult but the physical conditions reflect their own mental state. Constant stress from never-ending fighting results in a variety of reactions from the men. For the first time, the men also have to deal with the presence of Japanese civilians, who are being given safe passage through the US lines to safety in the rear. They arrived on Okinawa on April 1, 1945 and in early August they hear that a special type of bomb has been dropped on Japan. Written by garykmcd

Eugene B. Sledge: [coldly] Killing Japs.
2nd Lt. Mac: You just gave away our goddamn position!

A horrific yet great episode
10 May 2010 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I had high hopes for this episode, and my prayers were answered, this episode was no doubt the most emotionally deep in the series.

Action well built in with emotion and suspense really did it for me, the torment we see the Japanese and "Okinawans" go through is truly heart breaking at times.

We see the new guys treated even more harshly than before, breaking points, high points its just a masterpiece.

I enjoyed this episode thoroughly very re-watchable.

If you are faint hearted this episode may not be for you

Probably the best episode of the series
