Currently watching the drama-doc The boys of H Company on More4 about Iwo Jima. It includes interviews with those who fought there on both sides and the reconstructions are fairly well done as well. What really comes across is just how ineffective the pre-landing bombardment was and how the US marines paid a terrible price in lives because of this. In particular the corpsmen who were the target of Jap snipers and were often killed when attending the wounded. i have nothing but admiration for the marines that endured that place in 1945. The program is followed by the film Flags of our Fathers so that's me sorted for the evening.
