USMC IWO JIMA: Springboard to Final Victory

Excellent sequence of 86 photographs and a vigorous, synthesis of the 26 days that gute and drive turned into victory, memorializes the taking of this tiny, tough island. The heroism of the Marines, of non -- and ex-fighters, the value of a baptism that was bloody and the sacrifice that was costly, the horror of the knowledge that no shorter victory was possible --this is for the record lost we forget.
