"This 2DVD double pack pulls together single disc versions of
Clint Eastwood's outstanding Word War 2 double bill, which tells the story of the battle for Iwo Jima from both sides.

Flags Of Our Fathers:
February 1945. Even as victory in Europe was finally within reach, the war in the Pacific raged on. One of the most crucial and bloodiest battles of the war was the struggle for the island of Iwo Jima, which culminated with what would become one of the most iconic images in history: five Marines and a Navy corpsman raising the American flag on Mount Suribachi.

The inspiring photo capturing that moment became a symbol of victory to a nation that had grown weary of war and made instant heroes of the six American soldiers at the base of the flag, some of whom would die soon after, never knowing that they had been immortalized. But the surviving flag raisers had no interest in being held up as symbols and did not consider themselves heroes; they wanted only to stay on the front with their brothers in arms who were fighting and dying without fanfare or glory.

'Flags of Our Fathers' is based on the bestselling book by James Bradley with Ron Powers, which chronicled the battle of Iwo Jima and the fates of the flag raisers and some of their brothers in Easy Company.

Letters From Iwo Jima:
Clint Eastwood directs this companion film to his earlier Flags Of Our Fathers, telling the story for the battle of Iwo Jima from the perspective of the Japanese troops. Focusing the story on two good friends serving in the Japanese army we follow their life in the build-up to the battle and how they deal with the madness and mayhem around them. Ken Watanabe plays the Japanese commander General Tadamichi Kuribayashi, who's levelheaded behaviour and insightful tactics turned the battle into one of the most ferocious and bloody of WW2. Clint does a remarkable job as director, capturing the subtlety of the Japanese people and proving a very authentic tone to the film."
