Review quote

"Unforgettable ... one of the most instructive and moving books on war and its aftermath that we are likely to see ... its portrayal rivals "Saving Private Ryan" in its shocking, unvarnished immediacy."--"The New York Times" "The best battle book I ever read. These stories, from the time the six men who raised the flag at Iwo Jima enlisted, their training, and the landing and subsequent struggle, fill me with awe."--Stephen Ambrose "A powerful book whose vivid and horrific images do not easily leave the mind ... [Flags of Our Fathers] relates the brutalizing story of Iwo Jima with a fine eye for both the strategic imperative and the telling incident."--"The Boston Globe" "Brings a heartfelt personal dimension to this penetrating and insightful look at an American icon.... Flags of Our Fathers captivates as the story behind a famous photo, a story that lives on in a son's heart."--"National Review" "From the Trade Paperback edition."
