UNCOMMON VALOR, COMMON VIRTUE: Iwo Jima and the Photograph That Captured America Book. By Hal Buell. Published by Berkeley. 272 pages

"Uncommon Valor, Common Virtue" is about Joe Rosenthal, a scrappy little guy with Coke-bottle spectacles who, arguably, made the most famous photograph of all time.

A dramatic photo history of the battle of Iwo Jima and the iconic picture that captured America. 

On February 23, 1945, as the battle for the Japanese island stronghold of Iwo Jima raged below, Associated Press photographer Joe Rosenthal's camera captured six troops raising the Stars and Stripes on Mt. Suribachi. That photograph would go on to symbolize the Marines' valor and America's determination to win World War II. This is the story of the ten days Rosenthal spent on Iwo Jima-and how his Pulitzer-winning picture came to be. 

Containing over 120 combat photographs- including shots of the flag-raising by other photographers-quotes from survivors, newspapers and magazines, battle reports and Medal of Honor citations, here is a grunt's eye view of the bloodiest battle in U.S. Marine Corps history. It also recounts "the photograph's" enduring legacy in popular culture, and reveals the fates of the flag raisers- men who became a fixture in their country's history.
