Storyline Heading
Victory in Europe was finally within reach but the war in the Pacific raged on. The struggle for the island of Iwo Jima was the most crucial and bloodiest battles of the war. Five Marines and Nave corpsman raised the American flag on Mount Suribachi and the inspiring photo was captured and became a symbol of victory. Some of the men never knew they had been immortalized. The surviving flag raisers had no interest in being held up as symbols and did not consider themselves heroes.

DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Drama War - Despite the outward appearances, this is not a traditional war movie. While there are some rough combat sequences, this is less about the action element than the after effects of war. The slow pace makes this one for older viewers and not so much the younger action crowd drawn to war films.

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
A picture taken by Associated Press photographer Joe Rosenthal on February 23, 1945 depicts five Marines and one Navy Corpsman raising the U.S. flag on Mount Suribachi. The image served as a counterpoint for one of the most vicious battles of the war: the fight to take Iwo Jima, a desolate island of black sand barely eight square miles that would prove a tipping point in the Pacific campaign. Lasting more than a month, the fight was a bloody, drawn-out conflict that might have turned the American public against the war entirely, had it not been for the photo, which was taken and published five days into the battle. 

The photograph made heroes of the men in the picture as the three surviving flag-raisers were returned to the U.S. and made into props in the government's Seventh War Bond Tour. Uncomfortable with their new celebrity, the flag-raisers considered the real heroes to be the men who died on Iwo Jima; still, the American public held them up as the best America had to offer, the supermen who conquered the Japanese… 

…and then, just as quickly as it had arrived, the glory faded. For two of the surviving flag-raisers, life became a series of compromises and disappointments; for the third, happiness came only by shutting off his war experiences and rarely speaking of them ever again.
