Peleliu - Rakuen no Guernica follows the daily life of Japanese soldiers who took part in the Battle of Peleliu during World War II: a month-long campaign of heavy casualties. The main character Tamaru dreams of returning home to become a mangaka and sees his outpost on the island as a wild paradise that could one day serve as the setting for one of his stories.
