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.

Kay J. wrote about Camp Alfredo:

"You could tell the landscape was given importance when this resort was made. It's lovely. Camp Alfredo was specifically made for vacationers to commune with nature and unleash their inner strength. It's a place where you get to meditate, take in the beauty of the surroundings, challenge yourself with the resort's exciting facilities, and before the end of the day, swim to your heart's desire. Alfredo, the owner himself made sure our stay at Camp Alfredo was truly an adventure.
