    word war || .
    The imperial japanese Army positions on the island were heavily fortified whith a dense network of bunkers hidden artillery positions and 18 km 11 min of underground tunnelds.
    Iwo jima was also the only battle by the U.S marine corps in which the overall American casualties KILED AND WOUNDED ,exeeded those of the japanese ,although japanese soldierson IWO JIMA at the beginnina of the battle, only 216 of these were taken prisoner.some of these were captured because they had been knocked unconscious or
    otherwise disabled .the rest were killed or missing and presumed dead.
    Desposite the bloody fighting and severe casualties onboth sides ,the japanese defeat
    was assured from the start .the Americans possessed an overwhelming superiority in
