This is Guam

May 21, 2012

This is Guam:

An island in the western Pacific Ocean, both its geology and size have made it a strategic location for multiple larger countries, including Spain, Imperial Japan, and the United States. During the 1944 Battle of Guam, American forces wrested the island from the Japanese in a matter of weeks, as both militaries used the natural environment to their advantage.

Yet the island’s shape remains a puzzle. Some say it resembles a large peanut, others say it’s a fish. If you look at it just right, it could be a footprint. Most would say it defies definition. Perhaps we will never know.

But here on the blog is your chance to tell the world – what do you think Guam looks like?
