“IWO JIMA” By Richard F. Newcomb. Foreword by General H. Schmidt, USMC (Ret.). World War II’s bloodiest, most glorious Marine invasion.

Author Richard Newcomb tells this outstanding story of the epic battle for Iwo Jima. Perhaps one of the most complete books on this subject! Paperback edition. 254 pages, 20 black and white photos. A massive 27 page appendix, 4 maps and an index.
