Episode Summary

EDIT
Okinawa: The Last Battle of WWII
AIRED:
It was the last battle before the bombs. The final stepping stone on the warpath to Japan. Equal parts bloodbath and chess match, these are the strategies and tragedies that made Okinawa the Pacific's bloodiest battlefield, seen through the eyes of the men who lived to tell the tale. Rifleman Leonard "Laz" Lazarick and mortarman Donald Dencker relive the massive Japanese assault on Nishibaru Ridge that nearly cost them their lives, Sgt. Jack Mullikin and machine-gunner Mel Heckt take us moment-by-moment through a death-defying shootout inside a ruined shack, and Private Jack Houston recalls the terrifying moments as his company of Marines is cut down on the slopes of infamous Sugar Loaf Hill.moreless
