Rare D Day color film
Published on Mar 26, 2013 Without resupply, the battle on Saipan was hopeless for the defenders, but the Japanese were determined to fight to the last man. Lieutenant General Yoshitsugu Saito organized his troops into a line anchored on Mount Tapotchau in the defensible mountainous terrain of central Saipan. The nicknames given by the Americans to the features of the battle—"Hell's Pocket", "Purple Heart Ridge" and "Death Valley"—indicate the severity of the fighting.
Edit by Stark: This bomb was a little something something left by you yanks so we don’t forget not to fuck with the world anymore ;) Okay lets be serious its interesting, the bomb was discovered by the construction workers and identified as an old WW 2 chemically detonated bomb, these bombs were specifically designed to detonate hours after the raid was already over to spread terror and hinder rescue workers – quite diabolical huh? The problem is that these bombs are notoriously difficult to disarm so they had to detonate it instead, left a lot of fires on roof tops and some damage to windows etc. Happened in Bavaria Germany near Munchen. 8-29-12.
