Iwo Jima

I set out to have a piece on Iwo Jima by today. I took notes from a taped History Channel feature on the island invasion. As I began to dig into books and Wikipedia, I found out that almost all of what they said was wrong, from the dates to the body counts. They said that two Army Divisions took the south end of the island and two Marine Divisions took the northern end of the island.

Not so.

Their numbers for dead and wounded are also wrong. This will take me a while to complete.

You have to fact check everything guys, even the History Channel.
