Joe Rosenthal's Pulitzer Prize-winning photograph "Raising the Flag on Iwo Jima" is one of the best-known images in American history. For decades, however, the story of how the flag got there, and even the identity of the soldiers in the photo, has been confused and misrepresented. Revealing the truth behind the all-but-forgotten flag raising from earlier that same day, Eric Hammel also recounts the particulars of the battle, and looks at the photo's long afterlife through the popularization campaign undertaken by the Marine Corps and national press.
