One of the most violent and costly battles of World War II is recounted in this feature film from 1971. With the country on the brink of disaster and defeat imminent, Japan fortifies its last defensive stronghold, the island of Okinawa.
This final stand against the Allied attack soon becomes the bloodiest battle of the Pacific Theater and takes the horrors of war to a level never before seen, as the desperate Japanese forces try to demonstrate to the Americans what they should expect when they assault the Japanese mainland.
