The tribute in beautiful sterling silver commemorates the US victory in the battle for Iwo Jima brings - one of World War II's greatest battles. The photograph on which the sculpture is based is one of the most important in the 20th century.
The detail is incredible - all the way down to the seams in the army issue pants. You'll see fierce grit and determination on each marine's face. This is the ultimate gift for any military history enthusiast, World War II buff and every true patriot.
Mario Taboada Duro is the Spanish artist behind this work. Based on his original, this heirloom quality piece is a reminder to all of what the "Greatest Generation" gave to keep us free, and that Liberty has never been without cost.
For those that fell before the flag could be raised, the cost was everything.
Thousands of others gave almost as much. The battle was won after 35 days of savage fighting. 6821 Americans gave their lives and 19,217 were wounded.
27 Medals of Honor were awarded.
Success in the Pacific theater depended on this tiny volcanic rock. Iwo Jima was the last hop in a chain of stepping stone islands which led to the Japanese mainland. It was therefor a strategic imperative for ending the war and had to be taken.
The U.S. sent 110,000 Marines from Hawaii in 880 ships, the largest deployment ever.
Bombers and battleships pounded the surface for 3 days before the assault, but the Japanese Imperial Army was not on the surface. More than twenty thousand soldiers, famous for their willingness to fight to the death, controlled the island from a network of underground tunnels.
When the Marines landed, they surged onto the beach, only to be met with silence. For a moment it, appeared as if the bombing and shelling had worked. Then all hell broke loose.
