The story of six WW II soldiers immortalized by the famous photograph of the flag-raising on Iwo Jima.
James Bradley's father was one of the flag raisers, but his father never spoke of his experience except to say, "The real heroes of Iwo Jima were the guys who didn't come back." The book recreates the battle, where 22,000 Japanese and nearly 26,000 Americans died, and reconstructs the lives of the six flag raisers.
Graphic description of war.
