IRA HAYES The Akimel O'odham Warrior, World War II, and the Price of Heroism

by | Read by Shaun Taylor Corbett

Biography & Memoir • 8.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

Shaun Taylor Corbett splendidly narrates this biography of Ira Hayes, a Native American Marine who was one of the six men pictured in Joe Rosenthal's famous picture of the flag raising on Mount Suribachi during the battle for Iwo Jima in February 1945. Many historians have emphasized the tragedy in parts of Hayes's life, and there was certainly much of that, including his untimely death. However, his life was much more than that. In great detail the author describes not only Hayes's life and his experiences as a Marine, but also the history of his Akimel O'odham tribe. Taylor-Corbett's baritone has a winsome quality, and his clear enunciation and easy-to-follow pacing make this a worthwhile listen.
