The Battle of Iwo Jima (19 February – 26 March 1945)

The Battle of Iwo Jima (19 February – 26 March 1945) was a major battle in which the United States Marine Corps landed on and eventually captured the island of Iwo Jima from the Imperial Japanese Army (IJA) during World War II. The American invasion, designated Operation Detachment, had the goal of capturing the entire island, including the three Japanese-controlled airfields (including the South Field and the Central Field), to provide a staging area for attacks on the Japanese main islands.This five-week battle comprised some of the fiercest and bloodiest fighting of the Pacific War of World War II. (BMC and Safari US soldiers, Willys Jeep and M16 Multiple Gun Motor Carriage from New Ray).
