War is hell Theres no doubt about it Its so terrifying that it sends chills down peoples spines just thinking about It is the one thing that can give freedom yet at the same time suck the lifethe soul from someone Picture this you just landed on a foreign beach with thousands of other invading American soldiers The sound of bombs exploding all around you is deafening The enemys fire has already made it impossible to take a step let alone breathe Theres panic but its an organized panic Your sweating palms are loosening your death grip on your assault rifle You sense the ice rushing through your veins Fear Bullets are whizzing past your head ever which way and your fellow soldiers are being gunned down as if they were tissue paper There are screams of extreme pain and agony The stench of dirt and warm blood makes you feel nauseated The only thing you are thinking about is getting out of there alive and in one piece This may seem like just another scene you only see in movies but this is similar to what actually happened at the battle of Iwo Jima This historic battle was one of the most significant battles during WWII First of all the island of Iwo Jima was of strategic importance to both Japan and the United States This 75 square mile sulfurous island was vital to Japan because it was considered to be Japanese turf and it was located only 650 miles from Japans capital city Tokyo In all of Japans 5000 year history no foreign army has every set foot on Japanese soil Japanese If the US invaded Iwo Jima the significance of that would surely turn some heads To the Japanese leadership the capture of Iwo Jima meant the battle for Okinawa and the invasion of Japan itself was not far off Battle Iwo Jimas importance to the United States
