Description
 
One of the decisive battles of World War II in the Pacific, Iwo Jima was described by Lt.-Gen. Holland Smith, Commander Fleet Marine Forces Pacific, as “The most savage & most costly battle in the history of the Marine Corps” -- a titanic struggle that eclipsed all that had gone before. Situated halfway along the B-29 Superfortress route to the Japanese mainland, the island was of major strategic importance to the U.S. Air Force, but also to the Japanese, 20,000 of whom were deeply entrenched in the island. This book provides a definitive account of the battle, from its origins to its hard-fought conclusion. Photos & maps.
