From the author of the bestselling" Abandon Ship!" comes aclassic work of World War II history.
Richard F. Newcomb is one of the true masters of military storytelling. In researching "Iwo Jima" he interviewed hundreds of Iwo veterans, both American and Japanese; read the diaries and letters of fighting men; and combed through masses of official navy and marine records to write the full story of one of the most famous battles in U.S. history. With exceptional depth, intelligence, and emotional power, Newcomb recounts the events of February 19, 1945, in which common men were thrust into impossible circumstances, demonstrating valor and even humor amid the horror and chaos of war.
