Description
 
The unforgettable memoir of a hero at the Battle of Iwo Jima -- the youngest Marine in history to receive the Medal of Honor. Following the attack on Pearl Harbor, 14-year-old Jack Lucas wanted to fight the Japanese; so he lied about his age & enlisted in the U.S. Marine Corps. He hopped a troop train to the West Coast & ultimately found himself assigned to duty in Hawaii. In Pearl Harbor he stowed away on a troop ship bound for Iwo Jima. Private Jack Lucas celebrated his 17th birthday 5 days before he landed on Iwo Jima. During the battle he saved two buddies by throwing himself on enemy grenades. Miraculously, he survived -- but just barely. This book reveals the rocky road that led Lucas to Iwo Jima & his recovery following his heroic sacrifice. Photos.
