War for Guam is a documentary about World War II and its enduring legacy in Guam, a U.S. territory since 1898. The program tells the extraordinary story of how the Native people of Guam, the Chamorros, remained loyal to the U.S. under a brutal Japanese occupation, only to be later stripped of much of their ancestral lands by the American military. Through rare archival footage, contemporary verite creative use of graphics and sound as well as testimonies of survivors and their descendants, the story is told from various points of view. These include war survivors like Antonio Artero, Jr., whose father was awarded one of the first Medals of Freedom for his heroic deeds in protecting American lives; and two key historical figures, Radioman George Tweed and Father Jesus Baza Duenas.
