Iwo Jima Saturday, 17 March 1945

Admiral Nimitz memorably announced in his Communique to the Pacific Fleet, “Among the Americans who served on Iwo Island uncommon valor was a common virtue,” even as battle continued on the other side of the island.

Excerpts are from Fighting the Unbeatable Foe: Iwo Jima and Los Alamos, now republished as a 75th anniversary edition in paperback and Kindle.
