|Peleliu: USMC WWII Combat|
Tribute site for a USMC World War II veteran who served at Peleliu, Yap and Ulithi in perilous combat and includes wartime activities transcribed from personal diaries, war journals, official records, and contemporary documentary material complied sixty years later on a son’s journey to retrace his father’s footsteps. From the spectacular reefs and somber shipwrecks of Truk Lagoon to surprising encounters in Yap and discoveries on the somber battlefield of Peleliu, this biographical and historical account documents the journey of two lifetimes. The tropical beauty of Micronesia provides the picturesque setting as the author uncovers the scars of war in a foreboding place where the ghosts of the past look out upon the sea.
