Together with Warren (American Spartans), Haynes, the last surviving officer of Marine Combat Team 28 involved in planning and coordinating the team's battle for Suribachi on Iwo Jima, here illuminates that battle. He includes not only official statistics, communications, and citations but also individual stories gleaned from letters, interviews, and reminiscences from both the American and Japanese sides. With skillful pacing and rendering of the combatants' voices, veteran narrator Michael Prichard (If Death Ever Slept) draws listeners into the violence of those four days of battle. An optimal choice for libraries where there is an interest in the history of combat, the U.S. Marines, the battles of World War II, and the experience of war.
