Rwbrooks created this memorable aerial tour of Palau, an island nation in the South Pacific. It's part of the Caroline Islands, an archipelago of the region of Micronesia. The country consists of over 300 individual islands, many of them uninhabited. The islands went from Spanish to German control, and were taken over by Japan during World War I. The island of Peleliu was the scene of a major battle between American and Japanese forces in late 1944, during the closing months of World War II.
