This special action report is based on operations of the First Marine Division (reinforced) against the former Japanese island of Okinawa in 1945 and is divided into three phases for purposes of the report. Phase I included training, planning, and rehearsals conducted in the Russell Islands, Guadalcanal area. The movement of this division to the target area concluded Phase I. Phase II began with the assault ship-to-shore movement on 1 April, 1945. Ground action in central and northern Okinawa was included in this phase which terminated on 22 April, 1945. Phase III consisted of the battle for southern Okinawa- the final destruction of organized resistance on the island, and the mopping up of enemy remnants. Phase III was officially terminated on 30 June, 1945. Topics include task organization, preliminary planning, training and rehearsals, loading and embarkation, movement to and arrival at objective area, assault phase, intelligence, and operational results.
