P.179 On page 179, the book makes reference to Sergeant Philip Doyle. He was my uncle who I never knew as he died in May of 1945, 14 years before I was born. I do not believe his two brothers, 7 nephews or 7 neices ever knew the precise circumstances of his death for our country. He was buried in the family plot. He has a plaque which has been in place for decades on the flagpole at our local school. Although he died young and his descendents never knew him, he has never been forgotten. Thanks for the personal history.
Terrence Patrick Doyle, son of Sgt Philip Doyle's youngest brother James.

Review: Killing Ground on Okinawa: The Battle for Sugar Loaf Hill

User Review  - Fredrick Danysh - Goodreads

Okinawa was the last invasion by the Americans in the Pacific during World War II. It was the last step toward invading the Japanese home islands and some of the most intense fighting of the war. The battle for Sugarloaf Hill was some of the fiercest fighting of the campaign. A good read. Read full review
