Those interested in learning more about Iwo Jima, the Marines, and Woody Williams can dive deep with Flamethrower: Iwo Jima Medal of Honor Recipient and U.S. Marine Woody Williams and His Controversial Award by Dr. Bryan Mark Rigg. This compelling account of a critical phase of the Pacific War, focused on the U.S. Marines of the 3rd Div., 21st Regiment, 1st Battalion, C Company and their Japanese adversaries, has been referred to as the Marine Corps version of Band of Brothers.
Flamethrower highlights the importance of Iwo Jima in the course of history and connects this American triumph to the war’s ultimate conclusion–the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
The book also explores Japan’s Holocaust and the men who served Japanese Emperor Hirohito like no other book to date.
Flamethrower is the only book on World War II endorsed by two Marine Corp commandants, (USMC 31st Commandant, General Charles C. Krulak, USMC 29th Commandant, General Al Gray) and a Marine Corp general, (General Anthony C. Zinni USMC (Retired)). It was also endorsed by the former head of the Marine Corps Historical Division as well a famous author of “Chesty,” Colonel Jon Hoffman. You can find Flamethrower on Amazon, Audible, and the author’s website.
