Resumen:
"This book is an account of some of the fiercest fighting in the war with Japan - the 36-day assault on the small volcanic island known as Iwo Jima. The struggle to regain the island resulted in more the 26,000 American casualties, including 6,800 dead. Of the 20,000 Japanese defenders, only 1,083 survived. The Marines' efforts secured what would become a vital emergency landing strip for crippled B-29s returning

    schema:description ""The Last Lieutenant is an account of some of the most intense fighting of the Pacific War. The immediacy of the story is heightened by the detailed descriptions that Shively's research has added to Craig's recollections."--Jacket."@en ;
    schema:description ""Jim Craig was a platoon commander with the U.S. Marines on Iwo Jima. This book presents his story, as told to his nephew. John C. Shively confirmed the details of his uncle's account and filled out the story with research at the Marine Corps Archives at Quantico and a careful review of the many books and memoirs of the invasion. Lieutenant Craig's view of the fighting was decidedly narrow. He had a specific job to do on a narrowly defined part of the island. At any given moment, his battle of Iwo Jima was confined to the 25 yards around his platoon.""@en ;
