      The week I was reading this aloud, I watched this slide show of photographers submissions to Best of PPA Professional Photographers of America youtube watch v 5DQG3D WARNING There is one nude image and one partially This slide show has a picture that recreated the famous Iwo Jima flag raising with basketball players raising a basketball hoop It made me ill I was glad I wasn t at that conference, our I would have been pacing in front of the picture wishing I had the guts to tell the photographer [...]

      Joe Rosenthal snapped a pulitzer prize winning picture atop Mount Suribachi during the battle of Iwo Jima Of the six men in the famous photograph, three would eventually survive the war James Bradley, the son of John Doc Bradley who was in the photo, knew very little about his dad s WWII experiences until his father passed away in 1994 His father, like many war vets, did not want to talk about the horrors of war, the deaths he witnessed, and friends who went missing James began a search after hi [...]

      I won t lie if this had not been the version adapted for youth, I am not sure that I would have even attempted to read it Historical non fiction and anything with war, it just doesn t catch my attention very often and I tend to gravitate away from it It often makes me feel stupid and uneducated and then I get mad at myself for not being able to suck it up and finish it I hate dates This book spared me from that In fact, I am of the mind that the original version may hold facts and I am sure som [...]

    10. Wesley

      I read this book for two reasons one was that I was hurting for a nonfiction novel the other is that I feel like I have lost a part of me that I used to consider to be patriotism After studying the war poems in British Literature 333, I felt like I didn t know what I thought about war, duty to country, and patriotism After reading this book, I still don t have all the answers, but I m glad I read it Flags of Our Fathers tells the story of the famous flag raising at Iwo Jima James Bradley writes [...]

      I read this for a history project It wasn t somthing I d noramlly read, but I really enjoyed learning about one of the most famous photographs of all time It felt good to learn about the history of America My grandma was super duper excited when I asked to borrow this book from her, it was pretty comical.

    12. Greg Haas

      The true story of the real Iwo Jima Flag Raisers before the staged second flag raising the world is familiar withand the absolutely incredible luck of it s photographer Interesting on how these boys were later used for US War Bond tours But I bought this youth version by mistake Better to get the full version, as war is NOT pretty and imho it should not be filtered.

    13. Shauna

      Really great book on how unlikely heroes became celebrities overnight from the second photo taken How coming back from war to instant popularity was too much to handle Great book, and of course better than the movie.

    14. Courtney

      I LOVED THIS BOOK I read it in one night another book I had to read to write a review paper on for my teaching license So emotional and informative I cried so many times reading this I love books that move me like that.

    15. Atrebs

      Great story of the men behind the monument a lot of new information for me and the description of the fight on Iwo Jima is vivid now I ll watch Eastwood s movie and the one told from Japan s side.

    16. Sarah

      Interesting to learn about a battle that isn t taught much in school very vivid and descriptive If you enjoy history, you will like it Slow start but gets really interesting

    17. Nate

      This is told by the son of one of the men who raised the flag on Iwo Jima Didn t see the movie, but I can t imagine it was better than this book VERY gory but so was Iwo Jima.

    18. Raymond

      Eye opening to the events in the Pacific theater However through the eyes of six special men that said they weren t that special.
