Once the heart of Japanese defences in Palau during World War II, there are over 500 natural and man-made caves all over the island which were used by the Japanese military. During the Battle of Peleliu, over 12,000 Americans and Japanese perished in a period of three months. More than 2,200 tons of ammunition resulted in one of the fiercest campaigns of the entire Pacific war. Even today, war relics are still visible throughout the island.
