Episode cast overview, first billed only:
PFC Eugene Sledge (as Joe Mazzello)
Sgt. John Basilone (credit only)
Linda Cropper ...
1st Lt. Edward 'Hillbilly' Jones (as Leon Willem Ford)


The battle on Peleliu goes on as the Marines continue towards the airfield. It's only the second day of fighting on the island but water is in short supply and the heat is excruciating. They are under constant bombardment from Japanese artillery located in the Peleliu Hills but the only way they can get there is to cross the airfield, a vast, open expanse. Bob Lechie is wounded and subsequently evacuated to a nearby ship. Sledge proves to be a steady hand in the battle. Back in the USA, Sid Phillips drops in on Eugene Sledge's parents.
