Description

Upon the 60th anniversary of the Battle for Okinawa comes this remembrance of the Tenth Army of the Pacific Theatre campaign, recounted by Bob Green, then a 20-year-old Second Lieutenant of the 763d Tank Battalion attached to the 96th Infantry Division. The invasion, launched on April Fool's Day/Easter Sunday, 1945, began the last major battle of World War II, fought as war in Europe ended and President Roosevelt died. Three months later, the Okinawa arena was declared secure, at sobering sacrifice by the 1st, 2d, and 6th Marine Divisions and the 96th, 7th, 77th and 27th Army Divisions under the command of General Simon Bolivar Buckner, and by the Pacific Fleet commanded by Admiral "Bull" Halsey.
