The mini series follow these men and their fellow Marines from their first battle with the Japanese on Guadacanal, through the rainforest of Cape Gloucester and the strongholds of Peleliu, across the bloody sands of Iwo Jima and through the horror of Okinawa, and finally to their triumphant but uneasy return home after V-J Day.
