With exceptional depth, intelligence, and emotional power, Newcomb recounts the events of February 19, 1945, in which common men were thrust into impossible circumstances, demonstrating valor and even humor amid the horror and chaos of war.

This was an exellent book! I really enjoyed it and could not put it down. It is very detailed and gives a lot of information. Any WWII buff should read this book. It includes everything from the Japanese point of view to the Marines and their families back home. It is very graphic and really paints a picture of what war is really like.I give it 5 stars.
