Killing Ground on Okinawa: The Battle for Sugar Loaf Hill
To give human dimensions to the story, the author draws on his many interviews with participants and skilfully weaves together their individual stories of the sustained close-quarter fighting that claimed more than 2,000 Marine casualties. Pushed to their physical and moral limits during eleven attempts to capture the fifty-foot-high, 300-yard-long hill, the Marines proved their uncommon valour to be a common virtue, and this detailed record of their courage and commitment assures them a permanent place in history.
