ABOUT "FLAGS OF OUR FATHERS"
February 1945. Even as victory in Europe was finally within reach, the
war in the Pacific raged on. One of the most crucial and bloodiest battles
of the war was the struggle for the island of Iwo Jima, which culminated
with what would become one of the most iconic images in history: five Marines
and a Navy corpsman raising the American flag on Mount Suribachi. The inspiring
photo capturing that moment became a symbol of victory to a nation that
had grown weary of war and made instant heroes of the six American soldiers
at the base of the flag, some of whom would die soon after, never knowing
that they had been immortalized. But the surviving flag raisers had no
interest in being held up as symbols and did not consider themselves heroes;
they wanted only to stay on the front with their brothers in arms who were
fighting and dying without fanfare or glory.
