Iwo Jima, Battle of (February 19–March 24, 1945). This tiny, volcanic island of surreal ash and slag was strategically important because it lay on the air route from Saipan to Tokyo. From it, Japanese fighters could intercept U.S. bombers on their way to strategic bombing raids of Japan itself. A desperate fight thus ensued when American marines landed. It was defended ferociously—most often, to the death—by well-entrenched and even suicidal Japanese troops. American forces won the battle, but took heavy casualties. Overall casualties were measured per square yard, in what may have been the most bloodily contested piece of land in all of World War II.
Izvestia. “The News.” The official mouthpiece of the Soviet government for seven decades. See also Pravda.
