    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.
