Okinawa was the last major battle of World War II and took place from April through June 1945. Historian Mark DePue detailed both the U.S. strategy in invading the island and the Japanese plans for defense, which included kamikaze attacks on U.S. warships. He also described the months of hard combat that resulted in the deaths of more than 12,000 U.S. soldiers, sailors and Marines, and over 200,000 Japanese military and civilian deaths. The Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum hosted this event and provided the video. close
