WWII Battle Of Iwo Jima Pictures


The story that is before the picture set talks about the controversy surrounding the historic “Flag Raising” picture (shown on left) which was taken atop Mt. Suribachi, Iwo Jima, on Feb. 23, 1945.  The photographer, Joe Rosenthal, won a Pulitzer Prize for the picture.

Ha, I will remember that when I need a kidney or one of those TSA-G’s, on a different note the Weapon Profiler on the site is messed up if you didn’t know.

What kind of errors are you getting? I tried it in FF, IE, and Chrome and it works for me.

My article “Long Ago: A Total War in the Pacific Came to an Unimaginable End” appeared in a site of George Mason University (History News Network). It is currently in the HNN Archives for its date where it can be read and/or downloaded. It contends that the only possible command decision in August, 1945 was to explode the atom bomb at Hiroshema.

Thank you for sharing that Dr. Bornet. I bookmarked it to read at a later date.

The article is now well worth reaching because some 14 comments have been added to it, some of them from individuals well worth noting. VDB Ashland, Oregon
