Okinawa #5 (Ie Shima)
The Battle of Okinawa (Operation Iceberg) was fought from April to June, 1945. The amphibious landings at the outset of the battle was the largest amphibious assault of the Pacific War. Okinawa was the last stop on the Allied island hopping campaign before getting to the Japanese main islands. The US took over 50,000 casualties in the battle.
This map is of Ie Shima (now called Iejima), just off the coast of Okinawa. There was a five day battle on the island from 16-21 April. It is most commonly known as where famed war reporter Ernie Pyle was killed by a Japanese machine gunner.
