The Battle of Iwo Jima (19 February – 26 March 1945) was a major battle in which the U.S Marines landed on and eventually captured the island of Iwo Jima from the Japanese Imperial Army during World War 11
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 Center 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 War in the Pacific of World War II.
After the heavy losses incurred in the battle, the strategic value of the island remains controversial.
Rosenthal's photograph, of raising the flag on Mount Suribachi located at the southeast end of the island of Iwo Jima promptly became iconic not only of that battle, but of the Pacific War and of the Marine Corps itself. This image has been widely reproduced.
