IWO JIMA Japan U.S. 5th Marines Division BEACH
CHICAGO DAILY TRIBUNE, Feb. 19, 1945 * U.S. Marines landing * Battle of Iwo Jima begins * World War II original - WWII The front page has a great banner headline: "MARINES INVADE IWO ISLAND; BAG 509 PLANES AT TOKYO" with subheads. Nice for display. Early 1st report coverage on the initial landing by U.S. marines on Iwo Jima. Complete with all 26 pages, light toning at the margins, small library stamp within the masthead, small binding holes along the spine, generally nice. wikipedia notes: At 02:00 on February 19, battleship guns signaled the commencement of the invasion of Iwo Jima. American naval craft used nearly everything available in their arsenal to shell the island, from the main guns to the antiaircraft flak cannons to the newly developed rockets. Soon thereafter, 100 bombers attacked the island, followed by another volley from the naval guns. Although the bombing was consistent, it did not deter the Japanese defenses, since most of the Japanese positions were well-fortified and protected from shelling. Many were sheltered by Mount Suribachi itself, as the Japanese had spent the months prior to the invasion creating an elaborate system of tunnels and firing positions that ran throughout the entire mountain. For instance, some of the Japanese heavy artillery were conceale...

Vintage photo of A photo of US landing
Size Size of photo 7.3" x 4.9" A photo of US landing ships unloading supplies on the beach of Iwo Jima where US Marines landed, 1945.Raising the Flag on Iwo Jima is a historic photograph taken on February 23, 1945, by Joe Rosenthal. It depicts five United States Marines and a United States Navy hospital corpsman raising a U.S. flag atop Mount Suribachi, during the Battle of Iwo Jima in World War II.The photograph was extremely popular, being reprinted in thousands of publications. Later, it became the only photograph to win the Pulitzer Prize for Photography in the same year as its publication, and came to be regarded in the United States as one of the most significant and recognizable images of the war, and quite possibly the most reproduced photograph of all time. Three Marines depicted in the photograph, Harlon Block, Franklin Sousley, and Michael Strank, were killed in action over the next few days. The three surviving flag-raisers were Marines Rene Gagnon, Ira Hayes, and Navy hospital corpsman John Bradley. The latter three became celebrities after their identifications in the photograph.The image was later used by Felix de Weldon to sculpt the Marine Corps War Memorial which was dedicated in 1954 to all Marines who died for their country past and present, and is loc...

Coral Comes High: U. S. Marines and the Fight for Peleliu
Coral Comes High: U. S. Marines and the
“The brutal and heroic story of Marines in action” The New York Times08:32, September 15, 1944.The 1st Marines stormed the Pacific island of Peleliu.Captain Hunt and his company of two hundred and thirty-five men were among some of the first to land; forty-eight hours later, only seventy-eight of them were alive.Outnumbered and outgunned by the enemy, they beat off all attacks with a courage which is at the same time matter-of-fact and superhuman individual, yet collective and drawn from the real comradeship of men who cannot let each other down. Here are dramatic accounts of wounded men miraculously still fighting, of two men seen in silhouette at night against the flashes of guns in a death struggle atop a cliff, of the flame-scarred bodies of Japanese in caves and pillboxes, of a nervous and badly scared youngster shooting one of his own comrades.When, at last, relief came and Captain Hunt and his handful of men staggered back to the beach, they had withstood three terrible counterattacks and killed more than five hundred enemy soldiers.“Coral Comes High is an unpretentious, stark, blow-by-blow story of a terrible action, well told in the fewest possible words” Time Magazine“This is a story of fighting men told by a fighting man.” General Alexander Vandegrift, Unit...

Slide Anchor Box Anchor for Boats, Offshore, Small,Silver
Slide Anchor Box Anchor for Boats, Offshore,
The Box Anchor is a state of the art offshore boating anchor that brings anchoring to a new level of sophistication by allowing you to have more control over the placement of your boat, regardless of the situation. It requires no chain and only a fraction of the line used for a traditional Danforth anchor, making the Box Anchor easier to handle than most other boat anchors available. The Box Anchor's unprecedented patented design allows your boat to be held at a 45 degree angle from the bottom, digging the downward facing flukes firmly into the bottom without snagging them permanently on debris. When it comes to retrieval, just pull the line to bring the boat over the top of the anchor and the lack of upward facing surface area will allow the Box Anchor to pop right off the bottom. This same principle works in wind or current change.
