    Suribachi or bust... those were the options for the 3rd, 4th, and 5th Marine Divisions that landed on the beaches of a tiny, volcanic speck of land in the Pacific Ocean called Iwo Jima. In February of 1945, the United States was looking for an island between the American Army Airbases in the Mariana Islands and the mainland Japanese Islands to serve as an emergency landing strip for battle-damaged bombers unable to make it back to the Marianas and to provide fields for long-range P-51s used for fighter escort. Iwo Jima was that island. February 19th, the Marine D-Day, was the beginning of the five-week battle that saw some of the fiercest and bloodiest fighting of the entire war; it was also the only battle in which the Marines took more casualties than the Japanese.
