Storyline

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.

After Burgin gives Oswalt the mortar sight, Oswalt puts it into its case and closes the lid. A second later, the camera cuts to a position slightly further back, and Oswalt is seen putting it into the case again and closing the lid, as if he hadn't already done that. See more »

Quotes

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]
Merriell Shelton: 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.
