The 81st Infantry Division landed on Angaur Island on 17 September, with two Regimental Landing Teams forming two beachheads. On 18 September, American forces connected the two beachheads and the 322nd Regiment nearly reached the western shore – which would cut the island in two. During the night, the lines of the 322nd were infiltrated by parties of Japanese trying to get to the redoubt in the northwest portion of the island.
