Video—ARTV: Pacific War, Guam, Part 4

posted on September 17, 2018
In this fourth installment of "The Men and Guns of the Pacific," the ARTV crew heads to Guam. When American Marines stormed the beaches of Guam in the Marianas Islands they encountered something that would come to characterize the war in the Pacific. The Japanese defenders fortified themselves in caves, and put up fierce resistance with some of those Japanese soldiers not surrendering until 1972. During the Battle of Guam when America tried to re-capture the island from the Japanese, four Marines received the Medal of Honor for their actions. Check out this segment from a recent episode of American Rifleman TV to learn more about the Battle of Guam.
