I was surprised by the contrarian view of why we sacrificed so much for one smelly island. All the past history books told me that the island saved many B-29 bomber lives on the flight to/from Japan. The author offers a completely different perspective and discounts that historical version. The existence of the Marine Corps after WWII was continued because of the sacrifice which made the difference in post-WWI politics.
