Through compelling first person accounts, dramatic recreations and archival footage, this two-hour docudrama follows in the boot steps of the boys of H Company as they fight one of the costliest battles in U.S. History. Every inch of ground the Marines took was at an extreme cost. Three days after they landed on Iwo Jima, the Marines raised the flag on Mount Suribachi. They thought the battle was over, but it raged on for 33 more days. On Iwo Jima, nearly 7,000 American soldiers were killed and over 20,000 wounded. The Japanese lost nearly 22,000 men. Of the 80 United States Marines awarded the Medal of Honour during World War II, 22 of them were at Iwo Jima.
