Today’s clip is from part five, of the HBO miniseries, The Pacific. Eugene Sledge and Robert Leckie’s units are preparing to move across the airfield on Peleliu. As they start the movement across, they are met with murderous artillery and mortar fire. Marines to their left and right are being torn to pieces by the intense Japanese shelling. But, in true Marine Corps fashion, they continue to press forward through that hell on earth to reach their objective.
