Battle of Iwo Jima – 75th Anniversary
The Camp Pendleton Historical Society (CPHS), in collaboration with the Iwo Jima Commemorative Committee (San Diego), recently published an 88-page commemorative magazine. The magazine contains (36) stories of individual Iwo Jima veterans and a number of informative articles about the battle along with various photographs from Iwo Jima veterans and official U.S. Marine Corps photos from the 36-day battle.
A limited-edition print magazine was provided to the 28 Iwo Jima veterans and 540 guests who attended the Iwo Jima Memorial Service & Banquet at Camp Pendleton on Saturday, Feb. 15.
In addition to the magazine, CPHS designed and published online digital versions of a post-1945 two-volume photographic hardcover book titled, “U.S. Marine Corps – Iwo Jima Operation – February-March 1945”, originally published by Headquarters, U.S. Marine Corps. The digital two-volume series contains (240) 8×10 inch black and white official U. S. Marine Corps photographs documenting the battle; the original 1945 captions are included with the photographs.
The digital version of the magazine and the two-volume series are available online for viewing at:
