This well written story of the horrendous battle of Iwo Jima and the raising of the flag on that tiny island during the final stages of WWII is a none too gentle reminder of the atrocities of war. The lives of the six men who put the Stars and Strips atop this hunk of rock were well researched and intricately woven into the story and aftermath of the battle by the son of the medic, James Bradley and his co-author, Ron Powers.

I would highly recommend this book to anyone interested in the history of war and/or the history of this great country.
