OKINAWA ODYSSEY. The Battle for Okinawa by U.S. Forces of the Tenth Army in the Pacific Theatre Campaign of World War II. A gripping story of war and remembrance, homesickness, fear, and ultimately, triumph.

Click to EnlargeOKINAWA ODYSSEY. Upon the 60th anniversary of the Battle for Okinawa comes this remembering of the Tenth Army of the Pacific Theatre campaign, recounted by Bob Green, then a 20-year-old Second Lieutenant of the 763d Tank Battalion attached to the 96th Infantry Division.

The invasion, launched on April Fool's Day/Easter Sunday, 1945, began the last major battle of World War II, fought as war in Europe ended and President Roosevelt died. Three months later, the Okinawa arena was declared secure, at sobering sacrifice by the 1st, 2d and 6th Marine Divisions and the Army's 96th Infantry Division, 7th Infantry Division, 77th Infantry Division and 27th Infantry Division under the command of General Simon Bolivar Buckner, and by the Pacific Fleet commanded by Admiral "Bull" Halsey.

Noted Texas historian BOB GREEN resides on the Green Ranch northeast of Albany, Texs, where his pioneer father first settled in 1881. Recipient of the Silver Star and two Bronze Stars, Green saw action in the invasions of both Leyte and Okinawa.
