Iwo Jima Association

The battle raged on Iwo Jima 65 years ago today. The landing took place on Feb 19th and the fighting continued for 35 days.

The Iwo Jima Association has a website with good info and a great photo gallery!

There are two books of photos reproduced. It takes time to view them as there are shots of the photo and of the accompanying caption.

You can choose to view as a slideshow and then go back to look for the caption on specific photos.

Volume 1

Volume 2

Take your time viewing. The shots are quite impressive. I'll sit with Jerry soon to show him this and get his comments. There are quite a few photos just in the first part of Volume 1 referencing the 4th Marine Division that he was part of.
