Confused paragraph

"The Marshalls, by contrast, were a much easier landing. The Americans used the lessons learned at Tarawa by outnumbering the enemy defenders nearly 6 to 1 with heavier firepower after the islands took nearly a month of heavy air and naval bombardment.[6] In the Marshalls, the Americans lost men, suffered wounded, and missing, while the Japanese lost men and had captured."

This paragraph makes little sense. Anyone have any idea what it means?

Edit: Also, the following sentence seems to provide little value to the article, "The invasion of the Marshalls was delayed for about a month due to logistical problems." It does not relate to the information in the paragraph proceeding it, and is not related to any information following it in the same paragraph it heads. Although what the impact of the delay had upon the invasion might be an interesting subsection in this article, this sentence might easily be deleted, unless or until someone would write up a subheading regarding the months delay with details.

To answer your question, I was going to fill in the blanks with the casualties before anyone noticed. That probably wasn't the best idea! Sorry! ;) Thanks! Your Pal, MooperVeltresleex 19:14, 30 July 2016 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by MooperVeltresleex (talkcontribs)
