Bitter fighting by US Army Soldiers and Marines along the Shuri Line on Okinawa Island in 1945 during World War II. Combat scenes from the Naha, Shuri, and Yonabaru areas in the beginning and at the end with short vignettes of conditions on the island in between.  Included are scenes of the rescue of civilians who had been hiding down a well and in the underground caverns connected to it for 57 days.
