520 2  "The Battle of Iwo Jima, a major event in the Pacific 
       Theater of World War II--and one of the bloodiest in 
       United States history--began on February 19, 1945. But 
       what happened two days earlier has largely been a footnote,
       until now ... On February 17, Landing Craft Infantry 449 
       was among a dozen gunboats helping to prepare the area for
       their invasion two days later. U.S. military leaders 
       thought they had weakened Japanese forces in the area so 
       they were not expecting any action ... From the towering 
       slopes of Mount Suribachi, Japanese forces opened fire, 
       forcing the U.S. commanders to recalculate battlefield 
       plans. They shelled and bombed the newly discovered enemy 
       positions. It was a move that saved countless lives two 
       days later, when tens of thousands of Marines stormed the 
       beach. The Heart of Hell is the untold story of the crew 
       of Landing Craft Infantry 449. Based on 130 exclusive 
       interviews with sailors who survived the battle, the 
       families of the men killed in the fight, and more than 1,
       500 letters the sailors mailed to loved ones during their 
       long months at sea, this is a story of duty, brotherhood, 
       love, and courage"--|cProvided by publisher.
