The Battle of Peleliu, otherwise known as Operation Stalemate II, was a battle between the United States and the Empire of Japan in the Pacific Theater during World War 2. Peleliu, which is present day Palau, was considered by some to have significant importance as a staging area as the United States pushed forward to Japan’s mainland, but historians have since been critical, saying that the island held little strategic value. Whoever is correct, the facts show that this battle, fought between September-November 1944, was one of the fiercest and most costly battles for the United States Marine Corps.

When the battle ended the 1st Marine Division had lost close to 6,500 men, or about 1/3 of their division, and the division was effectively out of the war until their numbers could be replenished shortly before the Battle of Okinawa.

The Japanese lost over 10,000 in incredibly brutal fighting; the importance of stopping the United States advance was not lost on the Japanese command and they put everything they had into defending this island. The final outcome, however, was inevitable as the numbers going into the battle showed superior American numbers, 28,000 to 11,000, and at this point of the war supporting aircraft and ships heavily favored the Americans. Despite the heavy losses the outcome really was never in doubt.
