This compelling story is about a time when Marine divisions landed and fought their way across the Central Pacific Ocean in eight major island battles during WWII. In the three toughest of those amphibious operations, each of the six Marine divisions became fully involved, either on Saipan, Iwo Jima, or Okinawa. I landed with them on those three islands, providing technical assistance and close-air-support for each of the six Marine divisions. The company that I was with, was called Landing Force Air Support Control Unit One.
