• An album of amazing photographs caught at the heart of the fighting of the most horrific battle of the war in the Pacific

Iwo Jima remains in the collective memory of Americans as the most horrific battle of the war in the Pacific, no doubt due to the fact that the number of losses that the Marines suffered exceeded those of the Japanese, which was normally not the case, and most likely because it required more than a month of bloody battles for this small island to be captured.

This ferocious battle of the elite American Army, fighting against Japanese who would fight to the bitter end, was abundantly covered by reporters belonging to the Marine Corps. More images were taken here than in any other theatre of operations. The photos captured strike at the heart of the fighting, without any complacency or stage setting, paying witness to the veritable harshness of this dramatic period of the war.

In this highly detailed book, Charles Trang presents a variety of photographs ranging from tanks, amphibious vehicles, weapons, mortars, rocket launchers and various types of aircraft. Included are more than 400 photographs and original pieces of documentation.
