From Booklist:

*Starred Review* It's often hard to interest students in long-ago events, but using a graphic novel to introduce the battle for Iwo Jima makes it very accessible. Before the graphic-novel section of the book begins, Hama provides a short, informative background piece describing the run-up to World War II, the significance of the Japanese war machine, and the importance of the tiny island of Iwo Jima. Then the graphic novel, illustrated by Williams in camouflage colors, does a terrific job of examining the ups and downs of the battle as well as the horror of so many losses--on both sides. That is one of the book's real strengths. Hama makes readers see the Japanese as real people and not just as the enemy. For instance, he introduces three young botany students who somehow arrived on Iwo Jima as the battle was beginning; and some readers may be surprised by the fact that the Japanese generals had spent time in the United States. This captivating book in the Graphic Battles of World War II series will encourage kids to read more. A glossary, short bibliography, and contact information for two relevant museums are appended.

Book Description Rosen Publishing Group, United States, 2008. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Anthony Williams (illustrator). Language: English . Brand New Book. World War IIís most enduring photographic image, that of U.S. troops raising the American flag on Mount Suribachi, was taken during the successful U.S. invasion of the tiny island of Iwo Jima. The U.S. victory was critical to Allied plans because the captured airfields on the island would provide a landing and refueling site for American bombers on missions to and from Japan. The furious battle against Japanese troops dug into a complex system of caves and tunnels is one of the warís most memorable struggles. Bookseller Inventory # FLT9781404260306
