Relive the Battle of Iwo Jima as US Marines invade and capture the volcanic island of Iwo Jima from the Imperial Japanese Army. Learn survivor insights of a battle that comprised some of the fiercest and bloodiest fighting of the Pacific War. Accompanying Mr. Degner will be Fred Harvey, a survivor of Iwo Jima.
