About this Product

Compelling true stories of war in a gripping comic strip narrative, written and developed by renowned comic book writers and illustrators, which will appeal to children and adults alike.

The savage battle of Iwo Jima was a costly but essential victory that paved the way for the Allied invasion of Japan. This book vividly recreates 36 days in 1945 when Marines such as Sgt Darren Cole and 19-year-old Private Douglas T. Jacobson displayed untold bravery, fighting seemingly impenetrable defences until the American flag could be raised on Mount Suribachi and the Japanese defeated.

The story is supported by a wealth of historical detail, including further reading on the causes and consequences of the events, the key players, a glossary of important terms and where to find out more.
