THE LIONS OF IWO JIMA The Story of Combat Team 28 and the Bloodiest Battle in Marine Corps History

by | Read by Michael Prichard

History • 9.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2008

Major General Fred Haynes (USMC-Ret.) recounts his role as captain of Combat Team 28's frontline maneuvers during the invasion of Iwo Jima. The Major General spares no details of the brutalities of war and the courage of the unit while also offering steely insight into the planning and strategizing of the bloodiest battle in Marine Corps history. Capturing the author's stoic and bluntly descriptive recollection of the battle with a gritty military cadence of his own, Michael Pritchard marches side by side with the grunts of CT 28 as they attempt to conquer the Japanese stronghold. A broad lineup of the actual Marines involved in the operation is introduced, and Prichard documents their fate in a grizzled and compassionate manner.
