A native child on Saipan salutes passing soldiers


The poor souls, tiered of the brutalities of the Japanese. My eyes instantly teared up. A picture is worth a thousand words, but this one leaves me speechless.

Please give the Combined Fleet the chance to bloom as flowers of death. This is the navy’s earnest request. RADM Tasuku Nakazawa prior to the Battle of Leyte Gulf
It is the function of the Navy to carry the war to the enemy so that it will not be fought on U.S. soil. Admiral Chester W. Nimitz
