Presentation and Discussion on the World War II Battle of Iwo Jima at Darien Senior Center
Tuesday,Jul, 3, 2018 @ 12:30 pm
Art Gotleib will talk and lead a discussion about Iwo Jima, a major battle near the end of World War II, at Darien Senior Center, starting at 12:30 p.m., Tuesday, July 3.
As US forces drew closer to the Japanese home islands in early 1945, fighting reached new levels of intensity. Iwo Jima, a small volcanic island only 650 miles from Japan, was the scene of desperate combat between the
U.S. Marines and the Japanese Army, and the most remembered photograph of WWII, the raising of the U.S. flag atop Mount Suribachi. Come and participate in this intriguing presentation and discussion.
