History Of World War II The Seeds For Victory
In late January and early February 1944, the U.S.Army 7th Infantry division assaulted Kwajalein Island and the other small islands in the southern half of Kwajalein Atoll. Simultaneously, the U.S.Marine Corps in the northern half of Kwajalein Atoll assaulted Roi Island and Namur Island. Following the battles for Kwajalein Atoll, U.S.forces assaulted and secured Enewetak Atoll and Majuro Atoll. These three bases served as staging point for air and naval forces moving onward in late months to attack the vast Japanese naval base at Truk (Chuuuuk) and other lesser Japanese installations enroute to the Mariana Islands. This DVD is about the patriotic U.S. citizens who sacrificed their lives in these historic battles.
