The Bloody Battle for Suribachi: The Amazing Story of Iwo Jima that Inspired Flags of Our Fathers | [Richard Wheeler]

The Bloody Battle for Suribachi: The Amazing Story of Iwo Jima that Inspired Flags of Our Fathers

The classic first-hand WWII narrative that chronicles the Marines’ savage five-day struggle to wrest Mount Suribachi from its tenacious Japanese defenders during their 35-day battle for Iwo Jima in 1945. Revised with a new introduction by the author and recently discovered photos, this book served as invaluable source material both for James Bradley’s best-seller Flags of Our Fathers as well as Clint Eastwood’s acclaimed film of the same name.

Audible Editor Reviews

In 1945, Richard Wheeler was a young Corporal in the 28th Regiment of the 5th Marine Division. His unit was sent from Camp Pendleton, in California, to a small island off the coast of Japan called Iwo Jima, where history would be made. Wheeler was severely injured in the battle and rushed to a hospital ship where he began making notes on all he had experienced. The notes became The Bloody Battle for Suribachi, the source material for James Bradley’s best seller and Clint Eastwood’s film The Flags of Our Fathers.

Danny Campbell performs Wheeler’s recollections in kindly tones of memory that help to soften this harrowing account of one of America’s bloodiest battles.
