The Battle of Peleliu, codenamed Operation Stalemate II was fought between the United States and Japan during the Mariana and Palau Islands campaign.  From September to November US Marines and Army Divisions battle for control of the small coral island of Peleliu. Campers explore this battle through discussions and historical simulations using information from maps, timelines, and museum visits. They create dioramas and fight battles with miniature soldiers, as well as engage in group-strategy games using large geographical maps. Fictional and nonfiction accounts, graphic novels, reference books, and related films and documentaries give campers a grounding in the period’s history.
