read the quote and answer the 3 questions
"Our attack pattern was: barrage a hill with bombs and shells, move up the foot soldiers, hold it against counterattacks, fight down the reverse slope, then start on the next one. We would attack during the day, dig in for the night--not for sleep, but for safety. A hole was never deep enought when the Japanese started their barrage. And then, they would come, a screaming banzai or a single shadow."

Is there more to this passage? What you posted says nothing about the long nights on Okinawa.

Your answer is well-done.
