Marine pioneers had constructed corduroy roads to bring forth armor and bulldozers to build fords across Suicide Creek. As soon as the ford was complete, the Marines began their assault across the stream and into the Japanese bunkers. The Marines escorted the Shermans forward and the Japanese reacted with everything available to them including individual soldiers with massive charges strapped to their bodies attempting to hurl themselves against the hulls of the American tanks.
