Iwo Jima was a tiny dark island four and a half miles long and two and a half miles wide. For Iwo lay on a direct line between the Marianas and Japan, and the Japanese on the island could give advance warning of the bombers’ approach. Located only 660 miles south of Tokyo, it looked from the air like a lopsided, black pork chop. On the bright, clear morning of that fateful Monday, a vast armada of 485 American ships completely surrounded Iwo Jima. The enemy would then put up massive antiaircraft barrages and stack fighter planes high in the sky, waiting to pounce on the B-29s. If the fighters could not shoot down a B-29, then they tried to ram it.
