Battle of Iwo Jima By Ava and Keylor

The Battel of Iwo Jima was a very long battle lasting from February 19 to March 26, 1945.

This battel was held in a small island in Japan known as Iwo Jima. This island was REALLY small.

There were two country's involved, America and Japan.

America was led by Admiral Raymond Spruance, and Admiral Chester Nimitz. Lieutenant- General Holland ' Howling Mad' Smith commanded the landing forces.

If the U.S capture Iwo Jima, it would be a big turning point because it was part of our three point plan.

The U.S took an important victory over Japan at the Battle of Iwo Jima giving them one of their three plans to turn this war around.

In this one month battle, about 21,800 people were killed and about 41,800 were wounded. This battle destroyed the whole island.
