Angaur

The Battle of Angaur was fought from 17 September to 30 September 1944 on the island of Angaur in the Palau group. The Campaign was named Operation Stalemate II. Anguar is a volcanic three mile long island rich in phosphorus. The island had good potential for airstrip construction. American forces landed on the 17 September on the northeast and southeast coasts, where they encountered mines and snipers that slowed their advance. Japanese troops had also dug into caves. Not willing to spend lives to secure the caves, American forces simply used bulldozers to seal their entrances.
