Guam Landings 1944 The Second Battle of Guam (21 July – 10 August 1944) was the American capture of the Japanese held island of Guam, a United States territory since 1898 (in the Mariana Islands), during the Pacific campaign of World War II.

This is an LVT-4 landing craft that could bring 34 fully-equipped Marines into an enemy-held Pacific Island beach during the Second World War. It could move at 8 mph in water and 38 mph on land. It was one of the few vehicles capable of moving on Iwo Jima's black volcanic sand beaches. Photo provided
