The Bones of the WWII Dead in the Caves of Saipan | History Traveler Episode 234

The Battle of Saipan had the worst to offer the men who fought there. Heat. Humidity. Mountainous terrain. And caves. Many of the veterans who fought at Saipan would later speak of the horrors involved in clearing the many caves of the Japanese defenders who had fortified themselves inside. In this episode, we're venturing to a few of these hidden caves where we find sobering evidence of what happened here in 1944.
