Iwo Jima: arguably the most violent battle of the Second World War. On February 19th, 1945, U.S. Marines of the 4th and 5th Divisions land on sacred Japanese soil. Thirty-six days later the fighting is over. Almost all of the 20,000 Japanese defenders are dead, and the shattered remains of three Marine Divisions leave Iwo after suffering over 6,000 dead and 15,000 wounded making Iwo Jima the "Gettysburg of the Pacific."
Iwo; Assault on Hell shows a worms eye view of the fighting on Iwo Jima. Seen from the eyes of the 5th Division Marines who fought and bled there, these interwoven experiences paint a blood mosaic that pays tribute to the courage and bravery of our Marine forefathers, who sacrificed so much for this famous island stepping stone.
