Sacred Ground - All-American boys - America's war - Call of duty - Forging the spearhead - Armada - D-Day - D-Day plus one - D-Day plus two - D-Day plus three - So every son of a bitch on this whole cruddy island can see it -. Flags of Our Fathers 2000 is a The New York Times bestselling book by James Bradley with Ron Powers about the six United States marines who would eventually be made famous by Joe Rosenthal's lauded photograph of the U. flag raising over Iwo Jima, one of the costliest and most horrifying battles of World War II's Pacific Theater. The flag raisers were Harold Henry Schultz, Harold Pie Keller, Ira Hamilton Hayes, Michael Strank, Harlon Henry Block, and Franklin Runyon Sousley the latter three men. James Bradley says he believes his father, John Bradley, was involved in the first raising of the American flag, but not in the more famous second one. Flags of Our Fathers, first published in 2000, was on best-seller lists for nearly a year. It was later made into a movie directed by Clint Eastwood.

In Flags of Our Fathers, James Bradley draws on those documents to retrace the lives of his father and the men of Easy Company. Following these men's paths to Iwo Jima, James Bradley has written a classic story of the heroic battle for the Pacific's most crucial island-an island riddled with Japanese tunnels and 22,000 fanatic defenders who would fight to the last man. But perhaps the most interesting part of the story is what happened after the victory. John Bradley never confided the details of his valor to Betty. Our family did not learn of his Navy Cross until after he had died. Now Steve took my mother's arm and steadied her as she walked up the thick sand terraces.

For two of them, the adulation was shattering. Only James Bradley's father truly survived, displaying no copy of the famous photograph in his home, telling his son only: The real heroes of Iwo Jima were the guys who didn't come back.
