To the Shores of Iwo Jima

Very good 1945 documentary/short film in colour, lots of very interesting footage recorded during the actual fighting on Iwo Jima. Four of the cameraman filming the footage died bringing this footage to the public. Among them was Bill Genaust who filmed the famous flag raising on mount Suribachi. “To the Shores of Iwo Jima” was nominated for an Academy Award in 1945 for Best Documentary Short.

Another must see documentary is “With the Marines at Tarawa
