Overview of Bloody Nose Ridge WWII Battle Site

Bloody Nose Ridge was a huge battle site on Peleliu that many American and Japanese lost their lives here. There are two monuments here on the Umurbrogal Mountains, one for the Americans which was the first one here and one for the Japanese which came afterwards. I find it kind of interesting that the Japanese one came afterwards and is so much bigger than the American monument. The American monument is for the First Marine Division and the Japanese monument is for all the Japanese soldiers who lost their lives here. The American one also has the names of the 8 soldiers who won the Medal Of Honor on this island. It is a nice kept area that provides good views of part of the island.

"'If you have a strict budget but still want to experience the clear waters and white sand. Then Rico Beach Resort is for you. The place may not look like much but still the beach will pay it all off. Just don't expect anything from the resort just expect that the beach is surely worth it.'
