1942 Raid on Makin Island

From The History Guy.

The Marine Raiders of the Second World War were described as the United States’ first special operations forces. A raid in August 1942 on a Japanese-held atoll tested the strategies and marines of the Second Raider Battalion. The History Guy remembers the 1942 Raid on Makin Island.
