Introduction

Unable to capture all their objectives on the 13th, the 8th Regiment launched limited attacks on the 14th to gain those portions of the line not taken the day before. The Japanese were dug in and unwilling to give ground.

Conclusion

The 8th Marines attacked again, but advanced little against strong resistance. The remainder of the regiment eventually had to be deployed in order to achieve the objective.
