Filename.............: Iwo Jima - 36 Days of Hell part 1.avi
UPLOADER’S NOTE –
Due to a structural defect in the commercial DVD process on this documentary, the only successful method of burning and ripping was by separate chapters. Just think of it as one long film, and watch the clips in order. The documentary is not in any other way affected. I am including the link to Iwo Jima on Wikipedia and additional sites to provide additional information, photographs and useful battle maps for those who are interested. Much of this is 1940s footage, so quality varies.
Timeless Media Group presents “Iwo Jima – 36 Days of Hell”, a documentary featuring over 25 interviews with veterans of the battle. The copy on the back of the boxed set reads as follows:
Iwo Jima was arguably the toughest battle the US Marines had ever faced. The courage and sacrifice of the men who fought to secure the eight square miles of stinking sulfuric rock and volcanic ash will never be forgotten.
Step back in time with the sailors, soldiers, and airmen who were there, and relive one of the most famous battles of WWII. Told almost exclusively through color footage shot by Marine Corps cameramen and veteran interviews, this documentary tells the story of the battle for Iwo Jima through the eyes of those who lived through it. See why it is said that ‘on Iwo Jima uncommon valor was a common virtue.”
The first section is the documentary, the second selection is a collection of interviews, related documentaries on the Iwo Jima Memorial and the B-29 Superfortress Bomber, and some lengthy interviews.
