Iwo Jima: Invaluable as a forward U.S. airbase, the Pacific Island of Iwo Jima became the scene of earth-shaking bombardments and an epic bloody battle. A mountain redoubt, Kamikaze attacks and loose sand that bogged down troops and vehicles complicated the five week American assault against the Japanese defenders. Okinawa: American and Japanese footage provides a close-up view of another intense island battle. An amphibious landing of unprecedented size by American troops sought to claim a new base from which to disrupt Japanese supply lines. Ferocious combat sequences tell of the Okinawa offensive step by step, including Kamikaze raids and infantry action in atrociously difficult weather.
