Storyline

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.

Quotes

Capt. Andrew Haldane: History is full of wars that are fought for a hundred different reasons. But this war, our war... I have to believe that every step across that airfield, every man that is wounded, every man I lose... and it is all worthwhile, because our cause is just.
