Storyline

Gentle-natured, fragile PFC Eugene Sledge arrives on rats and crabs-infested Pavuvu fresh from boot-camp, where hazing-minded Merriell 'Snafu' Shelton gives him a rude welcome to the mortar unit, which is bitterly disappointed not to get another Australian shore leave. Meanwhile Basilone leads the empty life of spoiled Hollywood star, while his brother George leaves for the front. Eugene's joy over being reunited with mates from home is cut short as Sidney Phillips eagerly packs to travel back home, but Leckie, who rejoined, is pleased his 'library' finally has an avid reader, albeit not an atheist like him. While the land on coral Peleliu, strategically close to the Philippines, Eugene crumbles under heavy Japanse fire, but the Marines pull trough, despite heavy losses, and the real fight for the air base is till to come.
