    Default WWII Pelileu Battle Trivia

    These are pretty hard. I've taken various, and it can get pretty detailed. Here is one trivia on the battle of Pelieu fought in WWII in the Pacific Theater. I got 8 right.

    I missed 3 on this one. This trivia is more GENERAL of the battles or events of WWII in the Pacific. If you know something about WWII history of the Pacific Theater, this one is good.

    My score 4 out 10, and I was lucky to get that.

    Not bad. I had a lot more reading and interest in these subjects, and living in the Pacific for years I had first hand knowledge of a lot of these things. One particular beef I had was a question that mentioned which island took the longest to secure. They mentioned it was GUADACANAL which took about a little more than a year. But I doubt they had this knowledge. And I know this because I personally knew a man that fought on the island of Saipan chasing down these remnants of Japanese fighters of Captain Oba after the island was "Supposedly secured". I even saw his machine gun riddled forearm he bared from chasing down Captain Oba and his men. These Japanese fighters held out for 3 months after the war ended. That's a year and a half. Island of Saipan invaded in June of 1944, Oba surrendered with his men in December of 1945. And the man was GUY GABALDON. A war hero of that battle. They made a movie about him HELL TO ETERNITY.

    I see, there are zero WWII buffs around here to take a poke of some trivia. I know those islands out in the Pacific, those tiny little dots out there are hard to find on a map in the first place, never mind the history that went on over there. (I mean like sleeping in airports draws more interest in here. Killin me man.)
