Your favorite WW2 battles?

Recommended Posts

Alo!

Well, we never lived during WW2 events, but you have read books, novels, playing games, watching TV shows such as Band of brothers, The Pacific, Combat. 

Which is/are your favorite WW2 battles and why?

Mine, is Bastogne because it envolve the story of the first 8 days which the 101st airborne division was closed within, the ring of german forces. 

The lack of supplies for the allies, caused heavy losses during the winter of 1944. 

What about you?

Id like to see a battle less talked about, like Kursk or Minsk. Why? Because not many people know about it and never have seen a massive scale tank/air/land battle

 

Though this topic should be under "Non-Battalion" Discussion.

Peleliu.  Research K Company, 1st Marine Division in the battle and you will see why.  They lost their entire company except for 18 men whilst repulsing over a dozen major banzai attacks and hand to hand fighting throughout the first 24 hours of the battle.  In what is described as the the most difficult fight that the US Military encountered in the entire war, the 1st MAR Div lost 1/3'rd of it's marines taking that beach only the size of 11 football fields in an entire month of close quarters fighting.
