On February 19, 1945, over 70,000 men of the Fourth and Fifth Marine Divisions, with the Third Marine Division in reserve, put ashore on an eight-square-mile pile of rocks and ashes on an island named Iwo Jima in the Volcano Islands. Lieutenant General Holland M. “Howlin’ Mad” Smith, commander of the expeditionary force, made a gloomy prediction of 15,000 casualties after reconnaissance photographs showed a well-fortified, dug-in enemy, an  estimate which proved to be low. After 35 days of warfare, on March 26, 1945, the battle ended with 6,831 marines killed in action. For the Marine Corps, this World War II contest produced the highest casualty rate in its 168-year history.
