Flags of Our Fathers: Adapted for Young People

Availability: In stock

by James Bradley with Ron Powers

Adapted for young people by Michael French

Through a hail of machine-gun and mortar fire that left the beaches strewn with comrades, the American Marines battled to the island's highest peak. And there they raised a flag.

Here is the true story behind perhaps the most famous moment in American military history - the raising of the U.S. flag on the Pacific island of Iwo Jima, February 23, 1945 - and the immortal photograph that lifted the heart and spirit of a nation at war.
