#72 The Battle for Iwo Jima, 1945


Poster Caption: This map was published in the Los Angeles Times on February 19, 1945, the day US Marines landed on Iwo Jima, a heavily fortified island occupiedby Japanese troops. As the map illustrates, if American forces took Iwo Jima (shown enlarged), US land-based bombers would be within reach ofTokyo, 750 miles away. In places the text uses a disparaging term for the Japanese common during the war. (Charles H. Owen and the Los AngelesTimes. Copyright © 1945 Los Angeles Times.
