Situated 650 miles from mainland Japan, the small island of Iwo Jima was considered the difference between victory and defeat for the Allies in the
Pacific Theatre during World War II. On February16, 1945, the U.S.-led Allied Forces began a three-day barrage on the island, but the fierce bombing had little effect on the Japanese troops who were deeply entrenched underground.
When U.S. Marines hit the shores of Iwo Jima on the morning of February 19, their objective was the highest point of the island, Mount Suribachi. The Japanese fought from a fortified network of underground bunkers, so the high ground had to be taken inch by inch. Finally, on February 23, U.S. forces reached the summit. The raising of the American flag that day provided a lasting inspiration not only to the combatants, but also to a war-weary nation.
The Allied Forces suffered 25,000 casualties, with nearly 7,000 dead. Those sacrifices led to air superiority in the Pacific . . . and victoryin World War II.
