Following the successful landings at Hagushi and the quick capture of Kadena and Yontan airfields, the US Marine Corps pursued the initially elusive Japanese. Northwest of the captured airfields was the site of one of the first determined stands made by the fanatical defenders. After a bloody firefight the Marines eventually captured the hill. In the heaviest fighting of the invasion so far, the Marines killed over 250 enemy troops, but it was only a taste of things to come.
