Uncommon Valor, Common Virtue
Iwo Jima and the Photograph that Captured America

Non-Fiction | Historical
It remains the U.S. Marine Corps.' bloodiest battle. Fifty
years later, it is A.P. photographer Joe Rosenthal's
Pulitzer-winning photo of Marines raising the American flag
on Mt. Suribachi that keeps the memory of Iwo Jima alive.
Uncommon Valor, Common Virtue is a full account of the
battle itself and of Rosenthal's ten days on Iwo Jima as
Marines fought against a murderous Japanese onslaught. It
recounts the enduring legacy of "the photograph"-most
recently in the historic picture of three firemen raising
the American flag at the site of the World Trade Center,
recalling Rosenthal's timeless image of steely resolve in
the face of tyranny.
Includes a bonus DVD, "Iwo Jima: Uncommon Valor, Common
Virtue", produced by Lou Reda Productions, Inc.
