007008-Operations of 773rd Amphibian Tractor Battalion, attached to 27th Division, in the Operation on Tanapag Plains, Saipan, 7-8 July 1944 (Western Pacific Campaign) 16 Pages1948 Personal Experience of Battalion Executive Officer. On 16 June 1944, just nine days after the landings in Normandy, the NTLF (Northern Troops and Landing Force) composed of the United States V Amphibious Corps, which was made up of the 2nd and 4th Marine Divisions, the 21st Infantry Division and attached Army, Navy and Marine Corps troops, opened the Marianas Campaign by an assault on the Island of Saipan. In the opinion of many commanders and officers the Saipan phase of the Marianas would be completed in ten to fourteen days. Later events proved this to be fallacious for two reasons: first, under-estimation of the enemy's ability to fight; second, fanaticism displayed by Japanese troops. Actually the campaign was not finished until 9 July 1944, 24 days after the assault. THIS ITEM IS SOLD AS A DIGITAL DOWNLOAD ONLY. AFTER PURCHASE YOU WILL BE FURNISHED A LINK FOR DOWNLOAD BY EMAIL.
