This is the part 1 video of my documenting the surviving WWII ordnance in the jungle of Naftan Peninsula in Saipan. In the last year-and-a-half of WWII this area was used to store massive amounts of bombs and ordnance of all types for the constant bombing of Japan. The American military was also stockpiling ammunition here for the expected invasion of the Japanese homeland. When the war ended the American military tried to dispose of the remaining ordnance but, with hundreds of thousands of bombs, many were left behind.
A fascinating modern day video showing WWII relics still in evidence – and dangerous – on Saipan, which was used as a major base for bombing Japan in late 1944 and 1945
