ON BLOODY OKINAWA Admiral Chester Nimitz flies to Okinawa to view the costly progress which the U.S. 10th Army is making. Wounded Yanks limp past the graves of their dead comrades. Tremendous artillery bombardments answer the barrages which the Japanese are laying down in an unsuccessful effort to stop the Yanks. G.I.s creep forward under cover of bazooka fire and flame-throwing tanks. High explosive grenades destroy Japanese defense caves. Japanese corpses and dummy tanks are passed. The advance continues over ridges and across valleys, until finally, Naha the ruined capital of Okinawa is entered.
