An unknown shipwreck beckons for adventure and discovery in a remote corner of the Marshall Islands. Contributing author Ben Sellers offers readers a chance to experience the final moments of the fateful journey in this fictional short.
In the heart of the Marshall Islands lies the ruins of the Terushima Maru, one of the many casualties of World War II that still carries a deadly cargo. A supply ship once used by the Japanese to support outposts in the Pacific, it now rest in the calm waters of Maloelap Atoll and is home to an abundance of marine life.
During WWII Taroa Island in the Marshall Islands was the home to the most easterly Japanese airfield. Destroyed by ruthless bombing by American forces in 1945, visitors can still bear witness to the history of this battle when walking through the jungle to this day. This is the story of the battle and the legacy left behind for the Marshallese who live within the ruins of this brutal conflict.
