Description

Oral Historian Mark DePue presents, Iwo Jima & Okinawa: Brutal Combat on the Doorstep of Japan

There was only one thing luring American war planners to invade the tiny island of Iwo Jima in February 1945. The island of black volcanic sand was little more than a dot in the midst of the vast Pacific Ocean, but it was only 763 miles from Tokyo, and thus was an ideal spot to land crippled B-29s returning from the Japanese mainland on their way to Tinian Island. Iwo Jima was also a suitable staging area for the next step – Okinawa, a sliver of land only 400 miles south of Japan’s main islands.  The fight on Iwo Jima and Okinawa were the bloodiest of the Pacific war.

Event begins at 6:30pm.  Doors will open at 6:00pm. E-TICKET MUST BE PRESENTED FOR ENTRY (printed or on digital device)
