Iwo Jima by Gary Smailes

It is 1945 and though Nazi Germany has been defeated, World War II rages on as Japan continues to fight. The US Marines have fought their way across the Pacific Ocean, defeating Japanese forces one small island at a time. The fighting has now reached Iwo Jima, a rocky volcanic island only 600 miles from Japan. You are a US Marine just about to land on the steep beaches of Iwo Jima. You must fight across the black sand to knockout the sea guns based there and take the island...
