Some questioned the strategic benefits of capturing the small Japanese island of Iwo Jima, but in February 1945, more than 60,000 American troops embarked on a mission that would ultimately help place the Allied forces in a position that would serve them well for the remainder of Americans' efforts in the Pacific.

Along with exclusive commentary and interviews with men who captured the island of Iwo Jima, NRA President LtCol Oliver North and NRATV Frontlines correspondent Chuck Holton tell an in-depth story of the struggles and triumphs of true American heroes.
