The first wave of Amtraks got caught on a coral reef and were mostly destroyed. Some Marines got to the 4 foot sea wall but were pinned down by horrendous amounts of fire. The initial naval bombardment and ground attack by helldivers and SBD's wasnt as destructive as previously thought so the Marines moved slowly. Thats all I can remember from reading up about it but I saw a few good sites about jsut googling Battle of Tarawa.
