Full Plot

The battle on Peleliu goes on as the Marines continue towards the airfield. It's only the second day of fighting on the island but water is in short supply and the heat is excruciating. They are under constant bombardment from Japanese artillery located in the Peleliu Hills but the only way they can get there is to cross the airfield, a vast, open expanse. Bob Lechie is wounded and subsequently evacuated to a nearby ship. Sledge proves to be a steady hand in the battle. Back in the USA, Sid Phillips drops in on Eugene Sledge's parents. garykmcd Despite the suffocating 115-degree heat and a lack of clean drinking water, Sledge, Leckie and the other Marines confront the highly-fortified enemy as they attempt to capture the Peleliu airfield. After seeing his comrades badly injured, Leckie himself is wounded and evacuated from the island. Sledge witnesses the shocking truth about what is sometimes required to survive and fight another day. HBO Publicity Plot not found

Merriell Shelton: Saw you readin' last night. Eugene B. Sledge: My Bible? Merriell Shelton: Writin', too. Ain't supposed to write shit down, you know. Gives the Japs valuable intel if they find it. Eugene B. Sledge: Guess I won't show it to 'em, then. Merriell Shelton: [he grins] Got a smoke? [Eugene hands him two cigarettes] Thanks, Sledgehammer. Cpl. R.V. Burgin: "Sledgehammer." I like that. PFC Bill Leyden: [in mild disgust] Jesus Christ. Merriell Shelton: Don't worry, we got a nickname for you too, Bill Leyden. We call you Ball-Peen Hammer. Like a little hammer, for a little man.

Andrew Haldane: History is full of wars that were fought for a hundred different reasons. But this war. Our war. I have to believe that it's all worthwhile, because our cause is just. Capt. Andrew Haldane: History is full of wars that are fought for a hundred different reasons. But this war, our war... I have to believe that every step across that airfield, every man that is wounded, every man I lose... and it is all worthwhile, because our cause is just.
