The Pacific War in Colour

No Surrender
Season 1  |  Episode 7  |  The History Channel  |  December 25, 2018

Americans keep pushing toward Japan despite the heavy cost, and the last island before Honshu is Okinawa. Japanese make a strong stand at Okinawa with more defensive innovation, and launch the biggest kamikaze attacks of the war off its shore. Americans are determined to push ahead and try to take Okinawa to stage an invasion of the Japanese homeland. At 82 days it is the longest battle of the Pacific war, and costs the lives of both commanding officers. Halfway through, President Roosevelt dies and Truman takes over.
