Survivors of one of the fiercest battles of the war in the Pacific tell their dramatic stories in this collection of oral histories. Veterans from all the services--Marine Corps, Navy, Coast Guard, Army, and Army Air Corps--are represented, everyone from infantrymen, machine gunners, and engineers to medics, airmen, and coxswains. Their vivid firsthand accounts of personal experiences explore the great variety of actions that made up the campaign to win Iwo Jima from the Japanese. Their descriptions of events add new dimensions to the history of the monumental battle. Ordinary young Americans thrown into extraordinary situations, they recall the details of battle as if it happened yesterday. Their recollections not only provide insight into military operations but reveal the effect that battle had on the course of their lives and the meaning it holds for them today. Interviews with forty-five Iwo veterans were selected for this book, among them Angelo Bertelli, the 1943 Heisman Trophy winner, and Charles Lindberg, the last survivor of the first flag raising on Mt. Suribachi. Most accounts were recorded face to face, while others were sent to Kessler on tape or were handwritten. Their compelling stories about the reality of the battle honor the sacrifice of the 6,821 Marines, sailors, soldiers, and airmen who died at Iwo Jima. An informative introduction helps set the scene.   show more
