The miniseries "The Pacific" features the 1st Marine Division's battles in the Pacific, among them the Battle of Peleliu. The Battle of Peleliu was the vicious battle fought on the island of Peleliu.

Bob Hope once said that the most emotional show he played in WWII was for the First Marine Division at Pavuvu. He agreed to do the show because the Marines were about to invade Peleliu. He recalls that 60% of the Marines were "Knocked off in that invasion of Peleliu."
