Flags of our fathers by Clint Eastwood( visu )

The story of the five Marines and one Navy corpsman that were forever immortalized as a symbol of WWII by raising the American flag at the battle of Iwo Jima. When Joe Rosenthal's photograph of the event becomes a symbol of hope for the families at home, the three surviving men are pulled from combat and sent on a tour across America to raise desperately-needed bond money. It is a trip that brings out the truths of both that symbolic act, and their lives during war. There were no cheering crowds to see Mike, Harlon, Ira, Doc, Rene and Franklin off as they departed Camp Tarawa. To maintain military secrecy they journeyed in the dead of night. Their destination was island X. That was all they knew. Through a hail of machine-gun and mortar fire that left the beaches strewn with comrades, the American Marines battled to the island's highest peak. And there they raised a flag. Here is the true story behind perhaps the most famous moment in American military history -- the raising of the U.S. flag on the Pacific island of Iwo Jima, February 23, 1945 -- and the immortal photograph that lifted the heart and spirit of a nation at war. James Bradley is the son of John "Doc" Bradley, one of the six flag raisers. In the course of writing "Flags of Our Fathers," James Bradley conducted more than 300 interviews with World War II veterans and their families."--Cover Video for American Cinema Class
