Hard Lessons Learned:  Tarawa

Admiral Nimitz continued his drive across the Central Pacific in November of 1943 with the invasion of Tarawa.  The US Marines suffered 3351 casualties in 76 hours of fighting for an island half the size of New York's Central Park. Did mistakes in the planning and execution of this invasion contribute to such heavy losses? Join MSgt Stephen Walter, USMCR (Ret.) for a brief film and insight into the controversy.
