Osprey Graphic History 5 : Island of Terror : Battle of Iwo Jima
The savage battle of Iwo Jima was a costly but essential victory that paved the way for the Allied invasion of Japan. This book vividly recreates 36 days in 1945 when Marines such as Sgt Darren Cole and 19 year old Private Douglas T. Jacobson displayed untold bravery, fighting seemingly impenetrable defences until the American flag could be raised on Mount Suribachi and the Japanese defeated. Text by Larry Hama with illustrations by Gary Erskine and Anthony Williams.
