A film; Letters from Iwo Jima


Letters from Iwo Jima, directed by Clint Eastwood

This is the second film from Clint Eastwood on the Iwo Jima  theme. Watch the commanding General Kuribayashi transform a volcanic island into a fortress waiting for the Americans to assault it from the sea. Many battle scenes are directly connected to the ones in Flags of our Fathers and this is a great way to understand the opposing forces and their efforts to fight and survive. The film was nominated for four Oscars.

Much recommended.
