Guam’s Liberation is the story of an island people and their astonishing spirit…toward life, adversity and captivity.You will see and hear how the Chamorros of Guam lived for the ideal of American Freedom… and hear how some gave their lives for it…when not even American citizens.

In Guam’s Liberationyou will see how the heroic efforts of the American military on the bloody invasion beaches of WWII Guam secured a permanent place in the hearts of the Chamorro people.Guam’s history from pre-war Guam to the events of WWII comes brilliantly alive through the use of archival film and historic photographs interwoven with extraordinary interviews of those who lived the history.

In Guam’s Liberation hear personal accounts of face-to-face combat defense by a few brave Chamorros against hundreds of heavily armed soldiers of the Japanese Imperial Army.Marvel at the courage and resourcefulness of a now captive people surviving years of brutal occupation…yet always loyal to Uncle Sam.Feel their anguish as these helpless captives are herded into jungle concentration camps but still prayed for the safety of the American military liberators fighting against heavy Japanese artillery fire. Experience the tears of gratitude in the eyes of the diminutive Chamorro grandmother as she looks up at the tall Marine liberating her from danger and squalid conditions. Come to the realization that to an elder Chamorro, every Marine is a Hero.
