Return To Iwo Jima
IWO JIMA - which means, "Sulpher Island."
This tiny pork chop shaped pacific island measuring only 8 1/2 square miles is 1/3 the size of Manhatten. Although small and remote, in 1945, Iwo Jima was an extremely costly piece of real estate for both Japanese and American fighting forces. Lying just 660 miles south of Japan, this tiny fortress would give the U.S. a forward airbase at the front door of the Japanese homeland.
Iwo Jima was a landmark of courage and individual valor - a battle the likes of which will never be seen again.
TOTAL RUNNING TIME approximately 72 minutes.
Filmed in Utah, Colorado, California, Kentucky, Kansas, Nebraska, Minnesota, New Mexico, Wyoming, Guam and Iwo Jima, Japan.
