This is a 89-minute documentary about the fighting on Iwo Jima, featuring extensive interviews with veterans who fought the bloodiest battle
in Marine Corps history.
The US campaign claimed the lives of nearly 7,000 Marines.
The veterans who survived the ordeal talk about their own painful and never-forgetting experiences.
It is a gripping, heart-wrenching and thought-provoking documentary.
