LANDING IN HELL The Pyrrhic Victory of the First Marine Division on Peleliu, 1944

by | Read by Shawn Compton

History • 10 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2018

Narrator Shawn Compton's dispassionate tone and bass pitch are a good match for this detailed account of the battle that took place on the Pacific island of Peleliu in September and October of 1944. The battle involved the 1st Marine Division and was expected to be much easier than it was. In fact, the division was out of action for six months afterward. Indeed, it was a Pyrrhic victory. Many of the details the author includes may not be of interest to those with a casual interest in the battle or what seems to be military trivia; however, those who want a full account will appreciate them. Compton's narration is appropriate for the text. He is suitably expressive to keep the performance from being boring and is clear when speaking.
