1945: Marines invaded Iwo Jima


On this day in 1945, the US Marines landed at Iwo Jima.   The island was eventually turned into an airfield and played a huge factor in the bombing raids against Japan, only 660 miles away.

A few years ago, I watched: Flag of our Fathers.   It is a good movie and it shows the cruelty of war as well as the bond among soldiers.

You can get the book that inspired the movie.
