Battle of Okinawa
The Battle of Okinawa has been called the largest sea-land-air battle in history. It is also the last battle of the Pacific War.
Three months of desperate combat leave Okinawa a "vast field of mud, lead, decay, and maggots."
More than 100,000 Okinawan civilians perish, with over 72,000 American and 100,000 Japanese casualties.
