U.S. Marines stormed the beaches of the bombed-out island of Iwo Jima on February 19th, 1945. The island’s Japanese defenders had entrenched themselves in an interlocking network of caves, tunnels, pillboxes and spider holes, and U.S. forces would spend the next several weeks advancing inch by bloody inch across unforgiving terrain.

From February 19th through March 26th, 1945 during World War II, the U.S became engulfed in The Battle of Iwo Jima with nearly 7,000 Marines and some 21,000 Japanese troops dead after the battle had ended. After the heavy losses incurred in the battle, the strategic value of the island became controversial. It was hopeless to the U.S. Army as a performance base and hopeless to the U.S. Navy as a fleet base. The Japanese combat death numbered three times the number of American deaths. There were 21,000 Japanese soldiers on the Iwo Jima at the beginning of the battle, but just 210 were taken prisoner.
