"U.S. Marine Raiders in Action...Blasting Their Way To Tokyo!"

Reconstruction of an event that took place during World War II when headlines screamed 'Makin Taken'. This meant the recapture of a strategically important island in the Pacific by a group of Marines led by Colonel Evans Carlson, nicknamed Colonel Thorwald. After thorough training, these marines, the so-called Raiders, sail to their target where a fierce and bloody battle ensues that should lead to victory.

A reasonable war film that tells the story of a group of marines who volunteer to fight against the Japanese.

They all have to go through a tough training, and realize that this mission can also cost them their lives.

In total, about 15,000 people participate.

But how many will return safely?
