Summary
"Bobby C. Blair and John Peter DeCioccio tell the story of Operation Stalemate II through the eyes of the 81st Infantry to offer a revised assessment of the [Battle of Peleliu]. Previous accounts of the battle have focused on the 1st Marines, all but ignoring the 81st Infantry Division's contributions. Victory at Peleliu demonstrates that without the Army's help the Marines could not have succeeded on Peleliu. The book also provides the first description of the virtually unknown battle on Angaur -- every bit as vicious as the one on Peleliu. Blair and DeCioccio have mined the 81st Division's unit records and interviewed scores of veteran Wildcats. They offer new data, particularly on actions involving the 81st's tactical maneuver units, and challenge the orthodox view that the 81st Infantry merely mopped up an already broken enemy. Allowing their interviewees to tell much of the story, the authors give a human face to a brutal battle"--Jacket
