Published June 14, 2022

Historic footage recorded during the preparatory bombardment of the Japanese Island of Okinawa shows just how devastating naval artillery fire can be.


Here's a quick clip of footage recorded back in March of 1945. It shows the preparatory bombardment of Okinawa by the U.S. Navy before Soldiers and Marines conducted a ship-to-shore amphibious assault against the Japanese controlled Island of Okinawa.


If you've ever wondered what a preparatory bombardment looks like, here's a quick look into how it happened in 1945.


Today, this attack would be even more devastating, as guided munitions would be used to take out key targets and targets of opportunity that were spotted by satellite and drone surveillance in real-time as the attack was unfolding.
