On Iwo Jima, boys became men in the crucible of pain, suffering, and enormous sacrifice. They jumped on grenades and ran into unrelenting firepower to save their comrades. They ran and crawled and groveled in the dirt to do their duty. We need boys like that today. I hope this book can help a few of them understand the sacrifices of heroism.
"Scott Brown does an excellent job demonstrating the courage and intensity shown by the men fighting on Iwo Jima by writing short sketches of the heroic actions which caused these men to win the Medal of Honor. A sober and inspiring read." -- Laura
